Default new hd?

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!!!!!

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "...holy crapola ...what a ride!"
