Default 2TB Drive Selection Decisions

I'm rebuilding my server & need some input on which 2tb hard drive may be perfect for my setup. I will be purchasing 1 or 2.

There is a 75% chance my rebuilt server will be running CentOS 5.5 (Linux) so if this will sway my decision I would like to be informed as to why. I'm not for absolute max transfer rates but more focused on reliability, low heat & quiet operation. I would also like an affordable setup which includes the drives.

Here are my contenders so far.

Hitachi DeskStar 7K2000
Seagate barracuda LP
Samsung echoGree F3 or F2
Western Digital caviar Green (EADS or EARS)
GOD Is Good

Intel i7-4790K
MSI Z97 Gaming 7
16GB G.Skill Ripjaws Z (1866MhZ CAS9)
NZXT Kraken X60 CPU Cooler
2x Sandisk Extreme 240GB SSD (RAID 0)
Seagate 7200.12 500gig HD
2x Radeon R9 280x's
Liteon DVDR
NZXT Phantom 630 Case
Antec TruPower New 750W Power Supply
