ok so im gunna be needing a new hd real soon but i dont know what to get....my windows vista score is 5.2 with that being the hd's everything else is 5.9....

now i know that there has been posts about this before but im to lazy to look thru them all so what hd should i get i was looking at....

raptors:150gb raptor x

samsungs: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F1 HD753LJ 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s

seagate: Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST3500320AS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s

honestly im leaning towards the seagate but there is a cache problem i guess and the raptors are bad ass but ive read that there not as fast as 7200rpm drives of today so please help me out here!!!!!
