Should I get a 80gb or 120gb harddrive or a Raptor 36 gb harddrive?

I am going to start a movie project soon and am wondering if the faster speed of the Raptor will help more than having more storage.
I will be recording to vcr then transfer it to the computer.

When working with movies...it's usually best to have a big fast hard drive. So, I'd recommend the 120gig...but a fast one. Such as the Western Digital 8MB Cache 7200RPM HD.

I cant do the RAID for a cuple reasons:

1) i might blow something up... :D
2) i only have 1 hd slot left

Thanks for the help guys




I plan on making a new computer in the summer though and have grand visions of a file/lan game/firewall/all-in-wonder computer...maybe RAID then.



(the might is more of a will)
