What is this Overkill we speak about?
2x 2TB HDDs(WD black) $149.99 x2
Antec HCP 1.2KW $279.99
A few External drives
So you looking to be around $2500 mark
Why so many hard drive? Video editor and photography alone could eat up TBs of space. I myself am a video editors, I only edit 720p, 5-6 mintue videos and that alone ended up to be around a 10Gigs, So depending on what his needs are rather have more space then be a limiting factor. Also having external drives helps for backups. RAW image format can be up to 20Megs a picture. I'm pretty sure hes going to be taking more then a few pictures at a time.
