You can call them and ask them to credit you since it's only a day or two. They're pretty good about it.

I wish I could benefit from stuff like this, but I don't have a credit card, or any money so I'm pretty much screwed.

They just want to keep you coming back and looking... makes good business sense to me.

Sorry for asking. But why would anyone need that much storage? I can't even fill my 20 gig HDD.

Are you joking? If not, I think most members would agree that filling up 72GBs worth of storage comes pretty easy, much less 20GBs. I have an 80GB drive and a 120GB drive and need them both.

Really? What do you have on your HDDs? Even with all my games/apps/documents I still have 5 gigs of room left.

well i do have almost 10,000 MP3's.....ahem, so those take up prolly over 25GB, but I have TONS of misc. video footage(no ,NOT pr0n!), a lot of DCI (drum corp international, if u dont know, dont ask) and tons of random programs, granted i could prolly get rid of about half of my data, i still couldnt manage with anything less than an 80GB drive. I just have a lot of stuff, even with a lot backed up onto CD's.

I'm a neat freak (on my computer, my room looks like crap) so if a program/file goes unused for like a week, it's gone. Any big file I really like gets put on a CD. I guess having a big enough HDD to fit all my crap on would be nice, but doesn't it kind of bog down your rig?

actually, on the contrary, in most cases, u take a hard drive of the same specs except for its size, and the bigger model will be faster. Take this with a grain of salt tho. For intance u take a 80GB model and a 160GB model produced around the same time, and thier platter density will most likley be the same, but more/less platters, so the speed will be the same. But if a manufacturer's top model is a 200GB drive and they come out with a 300GB drive of the same rotational speed, it most likely means that it has higher platter density, which equals faster speed.

If you were to benchmark a 90% full 20GB Western Digital against a 90% full 80GB WD, the 80 would win the benchmarks most likly. Even if you dont use the space, an upgrade from your 20GB to an 80GB or above (or 36GB raptors :D ) would give u a noticable performance boost, esp. in windows explorer.

Remember I wasnt trying to give a perfect scientifical explanation, in most cases my advice is right, sometimes it may not apply. Hope that helps, prolly too much info anyways....

I currently have a WD 250, WD 160, Maxtor 80G and 40GB all in the same rig. Yes, I am "that" crazy. Well, I configured them as follows:

80GB = OS System, Apps, utilities, etc.
40GB = Back-up/Restore
160GB = Games, RAW apps
250GB = Videos (home, music, movies, etc)

Holy crap! That's 530 gigs! It's like... holy crap! I always thought having ONE 120 gig HDD was nuts. And a 250 gig HDD!? I didn't even know those existed! Thanks everclock, I think I understood a little bit of what you said.
