    I planned on getting a larger HDD for storage, currently I have most of my stuff backed up on an external 160GB external. I made a 10GB partition on the 80GB drive Im using now for the OS & programs, can I make a 2nd partition now? Or should I just get the 2nd HDD?

    Sure, assuming that you have a 10GB partition, then the rest of the drive is unused space, you could go ahead and create another partition in that empty space. I don't see any reason to buy a new hard drive if that is the case.
