My System Specs


Again, this depends on what you plan on doing for the drive. If you are going to use it as a boot drive, I would recommend either a WD 1TB Black, or a Seagate Baraccuda 1TB 7200 RPM. I would personally go with the Western Digital 1TB Black.

If you are using it merely as storage or backup, I would recommend a low power drive such as a WD 2TB Green, or a Seagate Barracuda 2TB Green. You'll save money, and these drives are basically inaudible when in an enclosure.
