I am about to build a new computer, and I need hard drive (HDD) recommendations (not SSD drives). I need hard drives to place an OS as a second boot option. I already picked up an SSD for the main OS in a dual boot system. So what would it be a good HDD for this second OS? And for storing data from my main OS. I will probably need 2 HDDs; thus, I will need to find a good pair of HDDs and a good deal too. I am undecided about how much storage I need on each HDD. Could they be 500GB or 1TB? Please, help me and thanks for comments and advice.
You can use the Caviar Blue series. I would recommend the Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 64MB Cache @ 7200RPM. Or if you are willing to pay more the same but Black. Both will serve you well for your needs.
Yeah those prices you grabbed seem screwy, I have no idea what's going on with that arm. Anyway, I have the 64MB Sata 3 one, and it's been a really great and solid performer. Although I got it for like $90 a little over 2 years ago. But we all know why that is, but nice to see them finally approaching those same levels. Although honestly don't worry about if it's sata 2 or 3, doesn't really matter on a hdd.
