Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB Vs Seagate Barracuda 1TB

I was going to transfer a 1TB disc from my old system to the new one, but I don't want the hassle of moving all the data off etc so I'm leaving it in the new machine. Budget is tight and I know disc prices are stupid right now, but I've narrowed it down to these two. Any opinions about which is going to do better? This drive is essentially to hold game installs, and some other data.
Much as I'd love better drives the money isn't there.

  3. Aye the Seagate is the Winner.
  4. No sea gate is not at all good wd has good buffer as well as good RPM
    But most important is Low power consumption of WD caviar Blue as well as the A very Good Replacement Service Than Seagate since i used both seagate give me lots of pressure for replacement But When I have wd there is no problem i got first since 5 years but wd 1 tb got little bit problem due to power fluctuation and then i sent to wd and brand new Hard drive is in My hand Within 15 Days
