Is there a big difference between the two? I'm not talking a few seconds taken off of load times, I mean a noticeable day to day usage between gaming and web browsing.

The reason I ask is because I'm looking to upgrade my old ass hard drives and the ones I found (balance between cheap and good reviews) are around 90$ each. Both seagate barracudas (i know they're not WD blacks, but I'm poor) one is a 1.5 tb 32mb cache hdd and a 1tb 64mb cache hdd. Both 7200RPM.

So what should I get? I'd prefer the extra 500GB of space, but will it be noticeably slower than the other one?

Ofcourse.. Bigger Cache the better.

Get an SSD you will see noticeable changes.

Well of course a bigger cache is better, my question is how much better? Will I notice a difference, like i said I don't give a *** if 64mb cache will load things only like a couple seconds faster.

There is not a massive difference you have to look at sata 1,2 and 3. SATA 3 with 32mb cache is good enough.
