Trying to decide between two internal hard drives for my gaming build (and some general advice)

So I'm trying to decide between the Seagate ST2000DM001 and the Seagate
ST31000524AS hard drive but I can't really tell the difference between them.

As far as I can tell the ST2000DM001 has an extra terrabyte of storage and 32 more MB of cache.

Is their a reason that someone would prefer the ST31000524AS? Is it less faulty/more reliable?

I posted this in the storage forums but noticed this one had more to do with building pcs and such.
It's based of of this build http://pcpartpicker.com/blog/38/1100-gaming-build but mostly with a 2tb hard drive and a cheaper case. My budget is 1100$~

My build:


CPU: Intel Core i5-4570 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H81.Amp-UP ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 770 2GB Video Card
Case: Corsair 200R ATX Mid Tower Case
Power Supply: Corsair CX 600W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 (OEM) (64-bit)

Best solution

Gtx 770 needs a minimum 600W Power supply.

You need to change your PSU.

Thank you very much for the heads up Bassim Ansari I've switched over to this http://pcpartpicker.com/part/kingwin-power-supply-abt65... as per your answer. Do you have any advice about the storage or if the case will work properly with the parts I have listed?


Your HDD is fine.

You should chose at least 80+ certified power supply.

The Corsair one should be good I feel.
