    Some people are taking them directly from their PC and buying a USB harddrive enclosure for their spare harddrives. It works.

    Why are they all so big? I don't need 100gb if the games are scrubbed.

    You can find a 1TB external for like $100 (US) online now. Don't know about their quality however.

    I got a 500GB hard drive for $70. It's a Seagate drive too. (Not as good as Western Digital in my opinion, but still a good name brand). You just have to shop around and know when to pounce on a good deal.

    apparently a lot of games are under 1gb, but some such as ssbb are pretty much the same size

    I got my Western Digital 500GB MyBook for only $100 USD back in December. I'm hoping that the 250GB WD MyPassport works well with the loader, as I plan to use that for my backups and the MyBook for Geexbox.
