Default Steam...

So I have a 320GB HDD just for all of my steam games. And after Skyrim and RAGE, I'll probably only have about 30GB free. Just curious how large a collection every body else has. Is mine a small collection or large compared to the rest of ya'll? To me it seems rediculous that my Steam account has almost 300GBs worth of games. Well, to be fair I've two accounts one of which I've had since HL2 launched but still...

So, for the heck of it, post how large, in GBs, your steam account is.

Or do like me and plan on buying a bigger hard drive.

Probably more critical for me because I share a DSL connection- so DL'ing a game takes a long time. And if I DL during the day it causes immense lag for anybody in the house that might be gaming. So I'm stuck to DL'ing at night.

114GBs though, nice. Glad to see I'm not the only one with an extensive collection.

At this second my actual game install folder on my storage drive is only 46.2GB but that includes Starcraft 2, Trackmania 2 & Origin.

PS: I don't even have half of my Steam Library installed.

At one point I had all my games installed and it was around 400GB, but I removed all except the ones I play, and it's at about 150GB now.

Aren't you the fellow that has that thread about having like 800+ steam games installed? If so I figure you to be pushing a TB.

Wow, impressive.

I imagine if I installed every game I own, Steam or not, I'd probably fill up my 640GB HDD. However I'm trying to convert my collection to be entirely optical media-free. I think some of the older DOS games I love I may never get to have a "digital" copy but so far I'm making pretty good progress.

I know there's only a few responses so far but it seems 300GB isn't uncommon. Infact it may be on the small side.

my steam is currently 225gb with a little over 70 percent of the games installed .
if you dont have a backup , it will take quite a while reinstalling everything on a 28Mbit line

Ah, my bad. Well you likely have 500GB+, just going off of those screen shots. I am curious thought, how much that one guys has.
