RPM vs Storage

So there are 2 $89.99 Seagate HDDs. One is 1TB, 7200 RPM. The other is 1.5TB, 5900 RPM. Both have matching statistic everywhere else, including 64MB cache. So should I opt for higher RPM or higher storage space?

    Depends on what you are using the computer for, but you will almost surely be happier with a faster drive. more storage can be added later, but a slow hard drive will slow everything down.
  2. Get the 1TB, 7200 RPM
  3. Unless this is for a HTPC, go for the 7200.
