My HTPC is using a WD blue 250gb drive and I need to upgrade it. With prices where they are, I was thinking of going with a 1TB WD green drive. The biggest advantages of course are the low heat and noise. Downside is performance.

I am just wondering how much these guys really affect performance.

My undertanding has always put this in terms of performance components.


While the primary function of my HTPC is for the "normal" stuff like optical, TV and media, I do occasionally do light gaming on it such as Guild wars and maybe even AOE III or something. I can't imagine this drive will really affect these games much. After all, 3-4 years ago, I was using a 5400 IDE on a gaming rig of mine.
