I built my PC just last year with an SSD/HDD combo. As it sits now, I have a 240GB PNY XLR8 SSD for most of my non-game programs and my OS (win7 pro), and a WD Blue 1TB @7200RPM HDD for my games. I use a laptop and an external drive for most of my work stuff and non game storage, and have deleted pretty much all of the games I don't plan on playing and have already played through. Right now Im sitting at around 70GB of space elft of the 1TB hdd.

Ive been scoping out my upgrade options, but thought Id see what the community would suggest.

My criteria for a suitable upgrade are as follows:
-Must be atleast 2TB with 32-64MB cache
-Must be SATA III (600/5-6Gbps)
-RPM speed (if hdd) must be 7200RPM
-UNDER $100 (USD)

Options found so far:

Seagate Firecuda 2TB SSHD-$99

Toshiba P300 2TB HDD @7200RPM-$75

WD Red WD20EFRX 2 TB-$88-$90

WD RE/ datacenter (any model under $100)

If you guys could help me shoot through the pros and cons of these drives, or suggest ones that fit my criteria that might be better, that would be awesome. :)
