The gold costs around 20$ more here. Same capacities. I just use it for gaming and storage, which is better/more worth it? 😅

black is performance, gold is data centre (so improved vibration tolerance probably), depending on the type of gaming you might find green or blue to be better value as most games won't be impacted and they are all just as likely to fail as each other.

6tb blue is 5400rpm with a (i think) 2 yr warranty.
WD black is 7200rpm (better for gaming) and 5yr warranty.
So if you need storage space or this is going to be attached to a nas, console, or usb port then go for the blue.
If you need a performance drive, go with the black.
