Trying to put together a good setup for the $. As long as the drives are 5400+ RPM's I don't care, this will be media playback and storage only. 7200rpm would be nice and I don't mind paying a little more. Worth it?

This will be a raid 5 setup.

240$ 3x2TB - 4TB total - Hitachi 5K3000 SATA6.0

240$ 3x2TB - 4TB total - Seagate 5900RPM 2TB

275$ 5x1TB - 4TB total - Seagate 1TB 7200.12
