I can't seem to decide which hard drive to buy for my new build. I plan on using it for photoshop, gaming, browsing and such. I have alot of important pictures (baby pics) so I want a drive I can count on to last, as I don't plan to build again for a few years. I do back them up, but I still want a reliable drive. I would prefer a 1tb drive, but I doubt I would ever use the space. Which drive/brand would give me decent performance, at a decent price, with above average reliability. Thanks for the help.

I bought a pair of Samsung Spinpoint F3 1tb drives and put them in a RAID 1 array for data backup. Keep your eyes open for good deals, I got mine for ~$55 each. With Black Friday next week, I'm sure you can find some great deals if you're quick!

Definitly the Spinpoint F3.... here it is from Newegg, ~ 69.99 a little more expensive, but I don't know your preference.
