Hello again everyone,

Just need your opinion on what to do here. I am always running out of space on my hardrive from the hundreds of files I have on the drive. Its only 40gig because I was planning on designing anything when I bought it, I was only gonna use it to play on the net and play games.
I'm wondering if it would be better just to upgrade my hardrive or buy an external usb hardrive that I can plug into this one.
I'm not sure of the differences and not sure which one would be better.
Thanks in advance :D

I hate external hard drives, I find that they are really slow, and well, slow. You don't need to upgrade your harddrive to get more space, just buy a second internal harddrive and use that, in fact that is what I do... I have my primary harddrive where all my programs are installed to, and my secondary harddrive where I keep all my data ('My Documents', downloads, etc... basically anything which isnt an installed program).

My general rule of thumb is that if it is possible to put it inside the case, that is the way to go, it is usually better...

(and no you arent bumb, you were simply testing the moderators... :P)

Internal drives are definitely the way to go unless you need to move the data between computers.
