Default Time Capsule or just a big drive?

I am finally preparing to switch to Leopard (OS X 10.5). I want to run the built-in Time Machine backup program, but also want to keep my 750 GB external for other purposes (mainly to help me sort out my mess of fonts and files).

So: Should I just buy a second jumbo drive? Or spring for the Apple Time Capsule?

I already have an Airport Extreme wireless router — is the 802.11n wi-fi in Time Capsule sufficiently better? If so, the Time Capsule price is more reasonable.
