WD Velociraptor 10k rpm is by far the best bet for performance... you didn't specify your price range tho.

the best storage drive is the samsung spinpoint f3 1tb it's a recommended here at tom's
it's much better than western digital it's high quality reliable beats the the velociraptor 300gig drive in some benchmarks

+1 for the Samsung spinpoint F3 1TB.. If I've to give a second option, It'll be the Seagate 7200.12 1TB

So the Samsung is a quality product?

Ok, I read that it was great performance but does it have longevity as well?

because it's a waste of money loud and an ssd would be a much better choice
