Hi again. =)

I am thinking of finally making the plunge into Vista. Since hard disks are so inexpensive, and since my current drive is about 2/3's full, I figure it makes sense to get a new drive and start a clean installation of Vista there. I can just choose which drive to boot from, for a while, and make sure I am comfortable with Vista.

So..

I am looking at:

WD6400AAKS

Would this drive perform better than the larger 7500AAKS, due to the platters it uses?

I was wondering how either or both compare to Samsung's offering, as many reviews seemed to indicate the Samsung was the best performer. Does anyone know if there are 1 and 2 platter Samsung drives with the new, higher density platters?

For me, anything > 250 GB is sufficient storage size, and I do not care about noise, as my case fans are louder than whatever the harddrive will do. So I'm really just focused on performance. (But a raptor is too small/expensive for me at this time.)

Thanks!
