More about what hard drive recommend gaming
  1. This Seagate if you can use the promo code http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148697
    Or even better this Samsung F3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152185
    No mechanical drive can max the SATA II interface so SATA II or III really does not matter until SSD's.
  2. You can't go wrong with Western Digital Caviar Black.
  3. never use a green drive for gaming, those are more oriented for storing images and videos since it has a slower read speed
  4. Thanks for your input!

    I went with this hard drive for $119 off tigerdirect.com
