Should I buy a 7200 RPM 1TB with 32 MB cache or a 5900 RPM 2 TB with 64 MB cache? I'm going to be using this drive for gaming just for a side note. Here are the links for both: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The 7200rpm is going to be faster! Same amount of cache/gigabyte!

The cost of HDD's is ridiculous right now. Yet SSD drive prices are becoming more reasonable. A gaming Rig should be easily managed on a 120 GB SSD. The performance difference is night and day. If you can come up with a bit of extra cash go for a 120 GB OCZ or Crucial or Corsair. You wont be sorry.
