I am building a new budget system from scratch for the 1st time. i have all components apart from storage. i currently have a st3160812as 160gb in the current system. i was up to about 30gb free untill i saved most files to dvd and am now at about 55gb free. with about £50-£60 budget, am i better to opt for an ssd 120-128gb and keep the 160gb or get an hdd 500-1000gb? and which ones? I would like to purchase from ebuyer or novatech. maybe ebay. depending on seller both is not an option at the moment, but adding either at a later date is. my eye is drawn to either 500gb wd caviar black or 1000gb barracuda. all advice is appreciated
my build, if it helps, is amd ii 260 gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 2x2gb cl7 1600mhz ripsaw ddr3 hd 4850 novatech vulcan ii case antec earthwatts 500 psu philips dvd+ rw dvd8881 (in current system but will take advice on changing or not?) currently have vista home premium 32bit
using mostly ms office 2010, web surfing/emailing and games (pretty much solely rpgs)
