Well Ones the 640gb(full price+freeshipping) and the others a 750gb (65+freeshipping). Then there is the Caviar green. (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-358-_-Product) They all have the same amount of cache and everything. So I don't get it which one should I get? Im looking for speed preferably.

Also why does the 750gb have 4eggs and not 5like the 640? I missed the black friday deal
i may just bite the bullet. there is free shipping on everything that I want anyways.

I'm guessing that you're talking about a 640 Caviar Black, 750 Caviar Black, and the 500 Caviar Green.

Blacks are WAAAY faster than the green, because when the green isn't in use it spools down to 5400rpm (saves energy)

and between the 640 and 750 blacks, the 640s are better IMO because they have dual 320gb platters for faster speeds. although pretty much any caviar black is sick fast anyways.

Yea, too bad about missing Black Friday. You could have picked up the 750gb WD Caviar Black for $60. You do want the Black edition drives if speed is your goal.

I was a little early and picked them up just before the big sale for $65....Oh well
Still, $65 wasn't a bad price.

I'm using the Windows 7 that MS is giving for free from the website, which is good until like next june-ish.

Unless you got the budget for it, I would give that free windows 7 a try before tossing more in
