So I just finished building my new computer last night and everything works great, but I now have a choice to make. I'm running my OS off of an SSD, but I need another drive to be my main drive for the rest of my games/applications that don't fit on the SSD.
I have a few drives laying around, and I'm having trouble choosing which one I should use... I've heard mixed reports thus far. Storage capacity isn't especially important as I already have another external drive for storage, so the main factors would be how well it'd do for gaming, and reliability.
The EcoGreen is brand new, WD Green is newish (got it on craigslist), the Spinpoint is 3 years old and was serving as a backup drive, and the Deskstar is a few months old and only used for storage. If none of these are very good options I can get another one once prices go down in a few months (hopefully), but for now I have to pick one.
Thanks in advance for any help!

More aboutwhich drives
I would go with one of the 7200rpm drives up to you which one 1TB or 2TB. Then again I have a question! Why are you not selling drives that you have no use for since you would get top dollar for them at the moment?
Green = slow so it wouldn't be those. The other two are about equal in the gaming score. See what works best in the apps you use.
