I read this with some amusement. It if were not for Myth and it's high demands 
on disk space I would be happy with a 40Gb drive for another year or three. 

I'm currently running one myth box on a 20Gb drive (15Gb actual vid space) and 
another on the balance of a 40Gb drive (approx 20Gb).

Over here (UK) even an 80Gb drive sells at 3x the $30 of this particular WD 
160Gb drive.. I'm currently on the lookout for bargins though and a 120/160Gb 
drive would easily satisfy me.
