Hey guys,
I have a question. I'm looking at getting another hard drive, and i'm gonna go WD black or Spinpoint f3.
The only real difference (besides warranty) I can see is that the WD black has 64MB of cache, while the Spinpoint has 32MB. Does this mean anything? Am I going to see any real change in performance from having that 64MB of ram?

Thanks guys.

When saving large files, the larger Cache will help slightly.

Go with whichever drive you feel comfortable with.

Thanks for the reply. I've had a WD blue and a Spinpoint, but I heard that more cache gives better performance. I'm gonna go with the F3, cheaper :D
