Looking for a new HD

Here's the current price per meg breakdown of different size drives out there.

250gb 170$ .68
200gb 120$ .6
160gb 90$  .5625
120gb 90$  .75
80gb 70$   .875
250gb 157$ .628
200gb 101$ .505
160gb 70$  .4375
120gb 64$  .533

Looks like a RAID array of 160gb EIDE drives is the way to go. I much prefer the SATA ones, but the market has spoken.

    I think we all kinda do which is why it was left without comments. 😉 Luv ya Gene!

    I kind of loved it, but I didn’t really understand the whole thing and then I hated myself for being a sucker with a 40 gig drive and then Voluntine bled all over the keyboard and it all went to hell.

    I just lost over 60 gigs of porn the other day when I had to reformat my stupid computer. Hey Gene, I have a technical question/help about installing movable type on staynobody.com. If you could help me, I’d greatly appreciate it. Also, I am heterosexual, I just meant if someone wants to smoke some cock, let them smoke cock!

    This entry is great.
    I decided to go with eight 200GB parallel ATA drives. They’re Seagates and they run nice and quiet and cool. With a 3Ware Escalade 7506-8 controller I have plenty of performance for my 1.4 terrabyte RAID-5. 160GB drives might have been cheaper but I couldn’t fit 1+TB in a mid tower with only 160GB per drive.

    Can you take instruction manuals as a foreign language at the college level now?
