Yes bah I say!! I need another hardrive soon (running out of space quickly) and joy of joys I have no more space. Can someone suggest a good ide card to slap in my rig for some more space?:cool:

Do you want an IDE RAID controller or just a simple two channel card? Either way, anything by Promise or HighPoint should work just fine. I know Promise cards have received good reviews, and I've used HighPoint's RAID controllers on my motherboards with no problems.

If you have a CD Burner, save some money and just put your unused files on disks. Thats what I do. I have probably 4 gigs of backups on CDs (and another 2.5gigs on the old Gateway) so I only ever have like 15-20 gigs used on my 60gig hard drive.

Most people dont use the entire contents of their hardrive every day, so I think CDRs\CDRWs are the best way to go.

Primise has always worked for me.
