I have found that anything less than 1TB for a C drive is completely
waste of time and money.

We (and a friend) have bought a number of 8TB external WD drives for external backups.  BUT you can remove them from the cases and use them for internal drives.  On sale every once in a while at Best Buy for ~$160.  No problems in 2 years.

This corresponds with my experience.
Additionally, instead of buying a new PC, I have exchanged a broken 1TB Seagate HDD for a 1 TB WD HDD and added a 500 GB WD SSD (for the OS) and thus considerably improved my aging machine which definitely confirms Tanstaafl's views in the post above.
