Hi all about me..!

AMD phenom 9950 quad core (2.6 GHz)
4 GB DDR 2
NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT 512 MB
ASUS M3N-HD/HDMI

My Current Storage (2x 1TB WD External) (1x 1TB seagate Internal)

OS is Windows 7,,

Dont know for some reason, after change from Vista Ultimate to Windows 7,,,
Feel my HDD needs a change..

I want to go for the best one, and i have issue with slow transfers..!

Too many in market and not able to choose one.!

I do not see any need to change your HDD. 2TB is perfectly OK

Are you talking about slow transfers to the external drives? If so, and if the external drives use USB 2.0, you might want to think about switching them to eSATA or USB 3.0 - that will make a big difference in transfer speeds.

No, the problem is with the 1x 1TB internal SATA Seagate drive, the transfers are too slow..!

Without knowing anything about the drive, question is hard to answer....

Is it a 7200.12 ?

If you're copying files from and to the same drive, that's probably a reasonable transfer rate. Remember that you're reading 20MB/sec from one file and writing 20MB/sec to the other for a total of 40MB/sec. On top of that the head will have to keep seeking back and forth between the two of them.
