More about what
  1. The Seagate offers a better performance than the Western Digital WD Green.

    The Seagate Barracuda is the best you can get at that price range.

    When you budget alllows you get yourself a SSD for a significant performance.
  2. Yep, what he said.

    Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm, or a Hitachi 7200rpm drive.

    Don't pay more for a SATA III hard drive over a SATA II, as NO hard drive can saturate the SATA II bandwidth.

    But if all you see or can get is SATA III, that's okay.
