I'll look at the documentation and see what ways I could set it up. Was thinking I could maybe have the whole second HDD for my [FILE]/home[/FILE] partition and having it encrypted.

Besides there's a portability issue, TrueCrypt runs on multiple platforms while GELI runs only on FreeBSD. And, as far as I know, only root can use GELI subsystem.
The way I see it, GELI belongs to kind of tools that sysadmins use, while TrueCrypt fits into normal user tools category.
