LOL No. Price / GB A ssd i about 4 times the price i believe. And considering he wants 1 TB of data i assume he probably wants to store thing in there for a while. The long term functionality and durability of a SSD has yet to be seen. I think he will be better off with a traditional HD in his situation.

I second (third?) this opinion

Not SATA III it's SATA 6Gbit/s
SATA cables are SATA cables, no such thing as a "SATA 6Gbit/s cable"

I know this isn't a choice, but I would strongly reccommend you go with a Samsung F3

Much cheaper, EXCELLENT Performance (One of the fasters 1tb drives, if not THE fastest), great reliability (Been running RAID 0+1 with 4 of them for almost 3 months non-stop on a friend's server).

Both WD Blacks and Seagate 7200.12 are good drives. Can't really go wrong with either. And yeah, Samsung F3s are supposed to be really good drives too.
