    Any drive is only as good as it's warranty.The fluid bearings are pretty quiet and cause less heat.My old ball bearing Maxtors are like hot plates and the newer fluid ones are cool to the touch.
    Gigabyte Z97X-UD5H
    I5 4690K
    2x2 gig Patriot 2x4 gig Ripjaws@ 8-8-8-24
    2x 128 Crucial M4 SSD for OS and one for Programs
    2x 640 WD Blacks for storage
    Rosewill Blackhawk case and Antec 750 New PS
    Corsair H100I cooling

    If you like quiet hard drives, get a Seagate, if you don't care about noise, get a Western Digital, both GREAT companies. I'd get SATA either way, virtually no price difference.

    Western Digital 160Gb is what I would get.
    The price differnce isn't great enough to justify not getting a 160Gb over a 120Gb IMO
    And I would get a Maxtor but their RMA policy is a little more strict and ahrder to deal with than WD's.
    SATA if you have the stuff for it or don't mind spending a little, but remember htat it can be harder to install an OS onto an SATA drive if you don't have native SATA.
