since all of my media will be stored on the "media server" PC, i dont have a large demand for high speed data acquisition.. do you people think that for MY application the 5400 will be sufficient, or are they really THAT slow?
mines a 5400 and its really not bad. You would probably be fine. You can always upgrade later.

Wow. My hard drive, a FUJITSU MHT2060AT, is only 4200 RPM...

Might be time for me to go shopping, too..
