Green=energy saving slower drive
Black or blue would be good to go, Green for mass storage.

Greens are for storing files like photos etc.
Blues are a good all around HDD (for files and games)
Blacks are optimal for gaming and they offer reliability by lasting about 5 years.

get blue, a good middle-of-the-road hdd. black is faster, but they say its hot and can be noisy.
i use SSD, then blue.
