Hard drive dilema.... 2.5" or 3.5"?
OK, here's the deal. I am building my carputer right now, and I misread the specs of the case. I thought it said it can hold one 2.5" hard drive, when in fact it can hold a 3.5" hard drive. Unfortunately, I already ordered the hard drive and it arrived today. It's a Hitachi 80gb 7200rpm notebook hard drive. If I return it, I have to cover shipping and a 15% restocking fee (got it from Newegg). However, I could get a good chunk of my money back and buy a bigger 3.5" drive.
Couple of question that I need feedback on:
-Is 80gb enough? Has anyone filled a drive bigger than that?
-Should I stick with the 2.5" since I already have it and take advantage of the smaller size, less heat, etc?
-Should I return it and get a 3.5" hard drive?
I'm gonna be running a M2-ATX PSU, so I'm sure it can handle the 3.5" drive. Thoughts? Any feedback would be great. Thanks!
