Storage space or speed?

I am building a gaming computer because now i have a laptop. I am buying a new case, psu, hard drive, cpu, and eventually a gpu after i sell my current one. I am keeping my mother board, ram, and cd drive. I was wondering if i should buy a large hard drive with decent read/write speed, or an average size hard drive that has a fast read/write speed. I was looking at a large hard drive with a decent read/write speed http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136513 for what seems like a reasonable price. Could someone tell me if this would be a good hard drive for a gaming pc?

  1. Do not use green power hard drive. They have lower rotational speed (5400rmp). If you want performance, go with WD black (7200rpm).

    Better solution: SSD for OS (fast boot), and large drive that is 7200rpm for you apps, games, etc.

    I have 150GB WD raptor (10,000rpm) for OS and apps, and the rest on 1TB drive.
  2. Yes but, I have a BUDGET.
  3. I would just go for the size you want and make sure its a 7200rpm drive. They are fast enough and once what ever your working with is in RAM it dosnt matter.

    Hi jrwizbang! That one isn't so bad but seagate are not the most reliable drives, there more prone to crash or die a western digital caviar blue will do just fine it's quite fast and very reliable and I just found one which I think will suite you best. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136073
