No matter what the size of hard drive you have, you will eventually have to replace it. I built a computer in September 06. It had a 250 GB hard drive. I am probably the average computer user; I use mine for homework, a little bit of gaming, Surfing the web, some DVD editing, and msn. My hard drive is about half full by now (June 07). I recently just added another 250 GB hard drive to use when my first one is full. You can add it on to your computer, so it might be fine to just start with a 250 or 320 GB hard drive and add another one in a year or so.
