Caviar Black 500 vs 640

Hello, I am currently looking for a harddrive to install windows 7. I currently have XP and want to have both to choose from, so the new drive will contain the OS and any programs I wish to install. Both have sufficient size, my main concern is first reliability and second speed. Which one is better for me to go with? Or should I look at a different company/model all together? Thanks for all your help

In case it helps, here's my current setup
Q6600 processor
3GB RAM
Radeon 5850 1GB
This is a computer used for everyday use but primarily gaming.

  1. This Samsung is the best 500 GB hard drive in my opinion. My roommate has one as his primary drive and it is super quick.
