Maybe 400 or 500GB hard drives sound big now, but it wasn't too long ago that a 4GB harddrive was huge.  Drop by Tech Spot to see the newest storage drives from Seagate and Western Digital.

"Processors are incredibly fast, RAM is rocketing its way through our games, and videocards pack

popular hard drive vendors. From Western Digital, we received the Caviar SE 4000KD which is a

400GB 4-platter SATA-II behemoth, and from Seagate, the Barracuda 7200.9 500GB 4-platter SATA-II
