What are your opinions on these two drives? I can't decide which one would be better for my first build.

Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

OR

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 ST1000DM005/HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Thanks in advance guys!

Either will work well. IIRC the benchmarks are better for the F3 but nothing that you would ever notice in use.
