The newer WD Blues and Blacks are good, as are the Samsung F3s.

If you want even faster, a SSD would be a great choice for the OS, though these are significantly more expensive for the size. Much more noticeable improvement though.

Ok thanks.
But if my computer is on 24/7 then is there any point

yea, the hard drive is the slowest part of a pc
7200rpm drives have a much quicker responce time over 5400
raid will increase data transfer speeds

you will get improvements from boot times to app loading and everything imbetween

64GB is adequate if all you plan on putting on it is your OS, your most used programs, and a few games.

if you can find a 128g for under $160 go for that
64g should be closer to $100
