Metalica, when people store stuff at ultra high quality, it can get rediculously big.

I've been a Dj for the past 8 years and have about 16 CD's out under my belt.

If the data is that important... Read up on RAID1, 5, 0+1, and 10.
Once again...

Invest in SATA. It's the way to go.

A motherboard like this allows for six drives on the southbridge in a RAID configuration (RAID5 or RAID10, although RAID 5 has horrid write performance mostly likely with onboard).

Then this puppy can handle up to 24 SATA drives... but it costs a pretty penny:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16816116046

For about half the price, 16 hard drives on this card:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16816102078

Then, rack up 750GB Seagates, and you'll be ok for a few months.


Also, you're the one person I'd advise this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827131034
Blu Ray. Expensive, but up to 50GB per disk, and better data security than hard drives.

MAJOR EDIT:

I just found this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817332008

That box fits up to four IDE drives. You connect it to you main rig with a USB cable (and heck, you should have at least a bunch of USB ports... .and otherwise, those are cheap to add). No RAID solutions, but you can build a JBOD array (meaning that the four drives in the box show as one in Windows, although they have to be the same size).

A few of those might help you out.

Next question is can i do all this on Linux? or should i stay Win XP? or should i upgrade to Vista?

Also thanks a lot for all thoughs links i cant buy from newegg but i can at least get the information from there and use it at my computer store.
