My System Specs

Default Help with harddrive choice.

Hello, I am in the process of researching hard drives for an upgrade of my current system. I was looking at some of the 1TB drives, but from a price to performance to GB ratio I think getting 2 500GB drive and raiding them is a better option right now. Could you guys have a look at the drives I have listed below and give me your opinions. Feel free to recommend other drives in the same price range and size if you like.Thanks.

Seagate Barracuda (ST3500320AS) 7200.11 SATA NCQ 3.0Gb/s 500GB 32MB Cache (OEM)
Warranty: 5 Years

Western Digital Caviar (WD5000AAKS) 500GB SATAII 7200RPM 16MB Buffer (OEM)
Warranty: 3 Years

Hitachi Deskstar 500GB 3.5" SATAII 7200rpm 16MB (0A35415)
Warranty: 3 Years
