Well, I already have a 120 and a 80 (IDE though). Another 250 on top of that would be overkill.

Currently I use the 120 IDE for music storage, and the 80 IDE for permanent storage of other files... though I may reverse them since the AAC files are considerably smaller than the MP3's I had when I started keeping music on that drive.

I'll probably subdivide the 80 SATA into two small partitions: One just large enough for Windows + a couple of Gigs for my home directory + a little breathing room in case future versions of windows are larger (the less crap on your boot partition, the faster it boots), and another drive for apps/games.

I got my stuff last night... Wow.

...I like it when I install Windows, and turn around to go find a movie to watch while the hard disk formats, and the format is done before I even leave the room.I didn't even choose quick format... that's pretty nice.

I think the entire install only took like 15-20 minutes.

I also love Antec. I bought a Sonata case... And I've never had a case that was so pleasant to deal with. And it's god damn quiet too, the only thing that makes any noise are the fans.

Basically, the video and sound are all integrated onto the motherboard. However, sometimes you'll come across a company that makes it easy for you to upgrade other things. For instance, my laptop has a cover that you can unscrew over the RAM and over the processor (Pentium 4), and you can also unscrew one screw and slide the hard drive out from the front for easy upgrading purposes.
