If it is just for storage a green drive (5400-5900 rpm) is fine, if for OS or programs or both go with a WD Black or a Hitachi Deskstar 7200 rpm. I use both and they perform well and I've had no issues (knock on wood) out of hundreds of them.

Yeah this extra drive is just for additional storage, and just curious as to what a green drive is ? and does it cost extra for one ?

The green drives, like the WD Green is usually a little cheaper. I have a number of the 2tb Green drives for storage. It is more energy efficient as it parks the heads quicker, but then does take a bit longer when first accessed.
