I would choose option 2 and add it as storage. If you are interested in performance then get a SSD for OS and apps.

Fresh install of OS on to WD10EZEX.

Turn the WD3200 to backup storage drive.

Go for the Blue - just put one in my desktop and now using the original (reformatted) Hitachi 500gb as back up and for video rendering and pc now much quicker - and no noise apart from the fans. Had wondered about a WD black bt too many reports about the noise. Get about 150Mb/s most of the time and pc does seem quicker than before. Hope this helps.

Just an added though, make a boot partition on the blue, like 150GB to 250GB, keeps the OS from spreading all over the hard drive.
