The Economics of PC Storage part 1

Talking to folks about building a new home computer after the initial tricky but quickly resolved problem of which CPU do you want to use. Comes storage, I'm talking internal hard drives. There is so much choice in the marketplace at the moment. Do you choose PATA (new name for ATA) or SATA? What about MTBF, power consumption, noise etc. What size is best 80GB up to 500GB all seem plausible sizes but where is the sweet spot?

So my goal is have fun putting together an OpenSolaris  high performance low cost NAS appliance and finding way to measure to see if it really is high performance and low cost.
