Default New HDD

Alright well i got a 80 gig western digital (dont ask me why i bought that thing a year ago, was just feeling cheap when building my pc) and well, i got tired of running out of space! So its time for a new HDD and i need some advice. I was concidering a 1 terrabyte but the 1.5 terrabyte also looks good. so here are my options:

Western Digital 1 Terabyte 7200 rpm Sata 16 Megs
Seagate 1 Terabyte Sata 32 Megs
Seagate 1.5 Terabyte Sata 32 Megs

Any advice is good. I want something thats gonna run good in my pc. Planning to store alot of movies, mp3's and also for some heavy gaming. I just reached my running out of space tolerance so i would like a reply by tomorow if possibe Thanks for everything!

Personally....I'd go WD BLACK.

NCIX.com - Buy Western Digital WD1001FALS Caviar Black 1TB SATA2 7200RPM 4.2MS 32MB 3.5IN Dual Proc Hard Drive OEM - WD1001FALS In Canada.

Faster, better, more reliable (than Seagate), YET costs about the same (actually less w/ the sale!)

Just my two cents

ok thanks with the advice i will take your word for it. Do you think the Seagate 1.5 TB is worth the 500 xtra gigs or should i stick with the 1 TB?


Alright i have ordered the 1TB WD Black. Thanks for all the help!
