I am looking for a new hard drive, mainly using for gaming and browsing the net.

The HDD´s I have access to are: WD blue, black and Seagate 7200.12.
1 terabyte will be chosen, that is plenty enough space for my needs.

I just wanted to get some advice before buying.

Thanks

*EDIT*
Money is no issue, and I dont want to go SSD yet.

I would go with the blue or black, probably blue to save some cash

I've had nearly all of my 7200.12s die on me, some more than once (RMAing RMAed drives). While this may have been a fluke, it's been enough to discourage me from buying any more.

I don't have much experience with recent WD desktop drives.
