Default HDD Questions

okay i have some questions
i want to make a very good gaming rig
so to keep it at the top of the line
i want to get good fast HDD to keep load speeds lightning quick
so what should i look for?
as it stands right now i have a 1 TB HDD chosen BUT not yet purchased
this one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136151

so my question is what would be the best internal HDD for gaming and quick loading?
i really dont care about size
i could buy several of the same to get close to 1 TB of disk space
which is what i would like to have
but if a 1 TB HDD is the best and it cost an arm and a leg
there has to be some that are smaller and cheaper to get to the same disk space

Go with 2 10,000 rpm drives in RAID, thats probably the fastest you'll need. Besides, hard drives don't matter that much in gaming anyway, spend your money on a good video card.

Western Digital raptors only go up to 150gb http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136012 but if you need more storage you can always add another hard drive like that 1tb one you are looking at.
