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.


CPU=/>GPU>Memory>HDD


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.
