Depends on what you do with your PC. In modern times 2TB is a decent space. If you are having an HTPC with lots of videos, movies you may go for more.

I have 1.6TB and still feel i am cramped for room!

I have 2.6 TB in one system, 1.8 TB in another, and 750 GB and 1.5 TB externals.

I have noticed that, as your available storage increases, you become less conscientious about weeding out the ash 'n trash.

You know for now i got an 80 GB for the OS and 1 TB for the games, I have two options:

1. get another 1 TB then an external 1 TB
2. get another 2 TB

this extra bit of space will just be used for movies,pics and programs

Options 1 is better. For backup always external drives are better.

Drives more than 1TB are more prone to untimely failures.

You have 1TB already. You are getting 1TB more. Plus 1TB external. That means 3TB in total. That should be enough space to fit in the Yankees stadium!! :D
