Hey guys, I'm building a new computer and just wondering which brand is more reliable. I'm going to be gaming a lot, but the performance doesn't mean that much to me. I'd rather have the longer lasting hard drive.

Both are around $70 CAD, and obviously the little details don't matter that much to me, I just want a reliable hard drive. :D

Both are quality manufacturers.

I prefer Seagate. If you go WD - look for the Caviar SE (mainstream) of SE 16 (performance) drives. Seagate used to have the better warranty but I don't know now - you should compare the warranties.

Thanks John, I'll probably just go Seagate as I've heard they have a much faster RMA system.
