The best drive out of the three would definitely be the WD Caviar Black 1TB.
It is a very high performance drive at $100 which is awesome.
It has 64mb cache which is lots of space, and dual-processors to help it run faster.
Also it is the most rated (almost 1k.). The reason to why it has 4 eggs, could be the more bought the more DOA, but as far as I know the Caviar Blacks are really great.

And for your last question, I don't really know what cache holds. But 64mb cache is supposed to be faster than the 32mb when exceeding the 32mb limit.
