I have the ASUS P6X58D MB and would like to know which would be the better and faster Hard Drive? This will be mainly used for Video editing with Sony Vegas Pro 9. I already have the Spinpoint F3 2TB as my storage drive for my videos. But I want a drive for my OS and my rendering and programs. I was thinking the WD black Caviar 1TB Sata6 or the Samsung F3 1TB or 500GB, Thanks

I'd shoot for the WD. From what I have read on the spinpoints, they are known to be problematic at times in regard to firmware issues.
