Old WD caviar black1002FAEX vs newer WD Blue 10EZEX

I currently own a caviar black 1002FAEX and a Blue 10EZEX (all 1 tb). The blue is a newer model but the caviar black is said to give better performance when gaming, i was just wondering which would be the better choice to pair up with a ssd boot drive

    Here is the spec sheet for the Black: http://www.wdc.com/wdproducts/library/SpecSheet/ENG/2879-771434.pdf
    And for the Blue: http://www.wdc.com/wdproducts/library/SpecSheet/ENG/2879-771436.pdf

    As you can see, the Blue has the faster transfer rate (150 MB/s vs 126 MB/s) but the Black has the better warranty. Performance will be ever so slightly faster with the Blue, but the Black should be more reliable.
