    I'm looking for a good HDD. Not as main, but second.
    One I currently have is a seagate 350 gigs iirc.
    Thinking of adding a 500 gigs HDD maybe a western digital.

    Which model would you recommend? Thanks for any suggestions.

    Thanks raynor.z. Yeah I am definitely looking for reliable hardware.

    I forgot mentioning, was a bit in a hurry, that my mobo is from late 2008, Asus type. So yeah, pc is aging.

    I think I have a Cavier Green 500gig in use somewhere. It's 5200RPM though, so probably not what you want.

    The green drives are BS marketing. They are slow and use such a minutely less amount of power that it's not worth your time. Blue is...fine, I guess. Black is the only WD that you should bother with.

    If you search for reliable because you don't want to lose data you should consider getting another HDD for backups.
