New build, which hard drive?

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.

  1. 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!
  2. Superbiiz has the 1 TB models for $56. Try code TAKE5 for an extra $5 off at checkout. I don't promise the code still works but $56 is dirt cheap.

    Why the hell would you pay $70 when you could pay $50???
  5. I don't know... some people are loyal to brands (edit:newegg in this case)... I'm cheap as possible... lol I got G35s for like 60$..... =p still on sale for 70 on amazon.
  6. Samsung Spinpoint F3 is the way to go.
  7. lol we are sooooo peaceful on the Harddrive front... everything else people always argue.
