For my Macbook Pro:
128GB SSD for my OS and small files
Internal 500GB HDD in disc tray for backup of SSD
External 2TB HDD for music/movies
External 2TB HDD for backup of 2TB HDD (only connect once every few months)

For my gaming PC:
128GB SSD for OS and games I'm currently playing
External 1TB HDD for storing all other games

I want to purchase another external HDD for my PC to backup all the files. Waiting for a good deal, possibly Black Friday.

Two 1,5TB HDDs in RAID 0 array for my art, music, videos, works, most games and all that with both speed and capacity.

Almost forgot my 2TB external HDD for backups and another external 600GB HDD for transferring.

only have a 500GB and 1TB on my comp which is far too little... it's not out of choice either since 2 of my 4 sata ports are busted on this 4 year old setup and i tried to get extensions with a sata raid controller but i couldn't find the drivers for the one i bought so i gave up.

on the flipside i have
3 x 1TB
2 x 2TB
1x 500GB

external drives all for backup purposes... it gets pretty damn annoying having to constantly move/copy files etc. but that will have to do until i get a new computer.
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

120GB SSD - OS installed on. Install games with long loading times on it, and most programs that don't take up too much space.

320GB HDD - Generally just put whatever doesn't fit on the SSD on here.

80 GB IDE - Use my IDE --> USB converter to use it as a ghetto storage drive to move files.
