Help me figure out how to make the ultimate backup/streaming media setup under $200. Or, just tell me cool things to do with my Wii that I haven't thought of. (more inside)

I just got a Wii + Fit Plus and I'm also in the process of buying some kind of 1TB+ type of backup drive for all my media. Currently I have an older desktop attached to my TV that I use for streaming media but it doesn't support larger drives and I'm out of space. I also have a few laptops that I use in other rooms for movie & music.
I'd like to buy a larger drive or NAS (at least 1TB) in order to store and share all of my media. I could just mount it (Ubuntu) on the desktop and share it on the network but I'm looking for something more creative.
I'd also like to find a way to make it redundant like in a RAID..
Also, any suggestions for ANYTHING else that I can use my Wii for will be welcomed. I mainly got it for exercise and probably won't buy many games.
I know I'm all over the place, but I'm looking for all kinds of solutions and ideas. Thanks!
