I'm building my own computer for gaming and I was wondering what kind of hard drive to get for it. It needs to be around a 100$ and be fast because I'm going to have windows 7 on it along with my games so speed is important too. I was thinking of getting one of these two hard drives
why not go further with a tb (1000) gb hd here are some good ones and you can't never get enough of that hd ,imagine all that info stored,
Western digital always.
seagate it's also a great manufacturer.
ok most important sata interface connection,
hd, rpm higher is better most commonly 7200 rpm you are good to go,
and the mb buffer it's always best to pick the biggest (your loading times will improve due to this buffer)
noticed that the wd.green hd has more mb of buffer but it's rpm only 5200.
and the wd black has less buffer but more rpm speed.
i'd go with the wd black nonetheless..
asus p5q pro turbo/q6600 @ 3.4 ghz 24/7/asus silent knight II/

Samsung F3 1TB 7200rpm drive can be had for about $80 (good for OS drive if you can't afford a SSD or can't justify the cost yet). The WD Green drives are good for storage and too slow (let's face it) for an OS drive. The Samsung F2 drives are also good for storage. I recommend Samsung drives, at least, right now.
