Post Due to Thailand flooding, Hard Disk Drive prices skyrocket!
OUCH! I just read this and I can't begin to tell you guys how painful this is. I have a few estimates for some builds lingering on my desk and according to New Egg, the price of the 1TB WD Caviar Black was $139.99 as late as Oct 25, 2011. A quick look today and the price rose to over $219.00 !!!

Better find some cheap HDD's for that storage upgrade, or just wait a few years ... :(
