    first off all, its 1.6 TB

    2nd: you'll prolly have to upgrade your PSU

    3rd: you'll need to switch to a hightower if you want to fit everything in.....

    4th: get extra cooling

    5thh, and what if you want to take some of those uncompressed movies* somewere else???

    6th (and prolly most important): what will give you more bragging rights? six 250GB disks, or one LaCie disk?






















    *you're not telling me you NEED 1.6 TB for all those MP3's you listen to......... thats 9 months of non-stop music..........

    My case can fit 5 hard drive...7 if u count the floppy drive bay as hard drive spots (it works, i have no floppy drives )

    Yes you would need really good cooling for that, the middle ones would get no cooling at all and probably over heat

    Real problem would be trying to hok up 6 ide devices. Guess you could buy 3 controller cards or something.

    No. You would only need one controller card. You can run 4 drives on it and 2 on your motherboard.
