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 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)

Gtx 770 needs a minimum 600W Power supply.

You need to change your PSU.
