If you have 6.5k, go for Western Digital Caviar Black 1Tb HDD. This one's superfast but only available at a high price

option 2: Go for WD caviar green or seagate 7200.12 1Tb HDD for 4.5k

option 3: Go for two 500Gb Seagate/WD HDDs, each one 2.7k. This one reduces the risk of data loss. After all 1Tb is lot of data.

Hi dessibond,
what do u mean my data loss,if u can explain in details it would be very helpfull.I am using 2X500GB, if i increase 1 TB more will it affect my pc's performance? or should i buy a 500GB Seagate external?

@fatalcore, these days, HDD failure rate has increase and that is why I thought it's better to have two 500Gb HDDs as losing 1Tb of data due to crash will be unimaginable.

as WD is ur recomendation, then can u kindly suggest 500GB HDD which is stable in terms of performance and money?The Green,Blue and black is confusing in WD website also.I use My Pc for gaming and watching HD Movies.

Blue: The mainstream 7200rpm HDD
green: power saving features like stop HDD when not in use etc
black: extreme performance for desktops. this one starts at 1Tb and costs 6.5k but is twice as fast as regular HDDs.
