    I'm gonna be buying at Seagate 250gb SATA drive here and moving my media over on to it, as well I need to do a reformat, so I'm wondering what are the best partitions sizes for each drive. I'll have the operating system and games/programs/etc... on the 120gb drive.

    As well, are SATA II drives backward compatible with SATA I ports? I have an Asus K8V SE mobo, but I want to be able to move the new drive over to a new computer eventually.

    Smaller partitions take less time to defrag. I use a 10GB boot partition for WinXP and put programs with huge data files on a separate partition. This keeps the images smaller also.
