Default NAS hard drive dilemma

I'm pretty sure I completely messed up here, but I just ordered all of my parts for my gaming PC, but I discovered just now that I ordered the wrong style of hard drive. It is a NAS hard drive. Here is the link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-343-_-Product
I will have a SSD as well. My question is: will this work?

I was wanting a regular hard drive, just to clarify.

It will work yes.

I forget exactly what's different about them, I just know that they're programmed differently to not send the "I've failed" message to a RAID controller if something takes a while.

Pretty much yes. I'm not sure how the performance of the Reds compare to the blues/blacks/greens they make but I have a feeling that you wouldn't notice it.
