Well not a huge amount between them all nowdays, but I would class WD black as my favourite although use Seagate 7200.12 at the moment due to better prices.

have had the seagate up til now but heard they had a reliability problem and was told wd mostly for ordinary not gaming use. will have a look at both again. thanks for all your help so far guys.

for the 500gb i think but seems to be good deals for 1tb, probably never need the extra, but then you never know. its more the reliablility am worried about.

was thinking about this at £50 as extra 10 delivery to NI at ebuyer, though same delivery charge at scan. thats the best i can find. can u see a better deal for either

aha, should have realised that. must have got my head stuck in ps3 for too long. i dont live anywhere near any pc suppliers closest is maplin 20 odd miles away, and there arent deals to be had at the best of times. not the market for the parts to really get a deal of course.

Why, it's backwards compatible, also surely somewhere in NI sells it?

never even thought about amazon tbh, must ask the oldies if they got much off it recently. are they ok for tech stuff? think i should go with the f3 in your opinion then, if go for this and have decent mobo in, thats a start and corsair ram, at least power supply/fans and case are good to go. lol. will just have to cut back on the graphics card due to budget..college student life! thx for your replies.
