Hi just wondering which HDD I should get for my new gaming PC, will just be used to store games and general storage. OS will be on an SSD.

I've narrowed it down to be between:

1) The Seagate Barracuda 1TB

2) The Western Digital Red 1TB Intellipower

3) The Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB

Is there really any difference? Price difference is negligible

I can help you narrow that down a bit more:

Don't buy a Seagate - WD drives are much more reliable. And that isn't just what I read somewhere, it's based on my own experience of those two brands over a period of 15 years.

Ok thanks. Just did a bit of research myself and will be going with the WD Caviar Black 1tb drive. Thanks for the input :)
