Im not a complete noob, but im new in the HTPC realm.

i have ordered the ASROCK vision 3d (has sata and usb 3.0) and i want to expand the Storage, i see so many different types or HDD and what not available, but i dont know what would be best suited to my system.

i want to addabout 2 TB of storage, can anyone tell me what will be the quickest most efficient type of storage to use so thats there are n issues when playing movies direct from teh HDD

Just had a quick look at the Asrock Vision and for me I would get a 2TB 5400rpm external hard drive and connect it via a usb port at the back. I would also use XBMC but there is other media software.. to play your movies and music, I use it on my HTPC and it's good.
Hope this helps.
