Hello everyone, for the past month or so I have been researching and buying parts for my new computer. This is the first time I have ever done this so I had a few questions about the remaining parts I need, which would be the hard drive and graphics card. Since this thread is about storage, I will keep it to hdd’s. The computer will be primarily used for gaming and the other common PC activities. I will be buying a 1TB Western Digital Hard drive, and I was wandering which would be better to get, blue or black. I realize black is better in every way, but it is also 50% more than blue. I do plan on getting a SSD later to store the OS, game .exe’s, and a few other miscellaneous I may need to pop in and out of. Is it worth getting black? Or should I get blue now, and upgrade to black when I get the solid state? If you could tell me why or why not that would be great, thank you all for you time.
If you plan to use it mainly for storage, go for the Blue; especially if you plan to get an SSD as your OS drive later on. If you plan to use it as your main OS drive for a good amount of time and are willing to put down the extra cash, I'd say get the Black. I'm not sure the exact spec differences, but you'd definitely notice the difference when using it as an OS drive.
