Of those two, the seagate. But your best option would be the Samsung Spinpoint F3. Fastest out there now I think. Uses 500gb platters, I think the 7200.12 does as well, but the Spinpoint is still a bit faster.

Of those 2 choices, I'd choose Western Digital, but I've just had bad experiences with Seagate.
I'm using that particular model of WD 1TB drives in my rig right now and its running well.

Check out the one the poster above me recommended though.

How much are you willing to spend and how much memory space will you need? If you want to invest something that will last a long time, I suggest looking at some SSDs.
