Get the one with the most space per dollar. Save up a little money and get an ssd at least big enough to boot your operating system from or preferably enough to install your apps to as well. That's where you will see huge performance gains. Then use your current platter drive as storage

ssd is too much expenses as for now it is not worth it until it come down in price.
one of my drive is storage right now the seagate one which is making some noise but pass on speedfan by 90% nactive hard disk monitor as 57%...

and i was thinking that more space per dollar but which one will be better as so far i have really not much use more than 750gb since i mostly store only favourite movies and other stuff of mine.
