im about to buy a hard drive but i haven't decided yet, im between
Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5"
Western Digital Caviar Green WD20EARS 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5"
both are at the same price 80$ my motherboard right now has SATA 3.0Gb/s but i will probably improve it to a 6.0Gb/s next year i normally do heavy gaming so the question here is, the performance jump between green and black is worth , to sacrifice the double capacity of the green one?

Black - Boot drive as in the one you install the OS on Green - Data storage
Since this is your main drive, go with the Black. It will load programs faster. If you can save up, then add a Green for data storage later on.
