Im looking for a storage drive to go with my build. I will be using (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B009LI7C5I/ref=ox_sc...) as my boot drive and for storing my main games (the secret world and rift).

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B008YAHW6I/ref=ox_sc... or http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B006H32Q3S/ref=ox_sc... for general storage?

The Green uses less energy but is a slower drive and less responsive since it parks the heads quickly. If you will access the storage drive often, I would use the Seagate.

I've used many of each and they are both quite reliable.

Definitely the Barracuda. You don't mention having another drive so you will want the faster barracuda to load games/programs/apps to.
