    Hello,

    With so little info, here's my tip:

    -More ram is only (significantly) useful if you max out the RAM you have.

    -WD hard drives have a very good record. I have 5 2TB greens, and 1 3TB green: love them all, they are perfect for storage. Go for the blacks if you're going to boot or work off them.

    thanks Loa, I have just 2gb ram! so Im thinking buy 8gb from crucial for have 10gb...

    about the hds, I have 1tb black and no problems 1 or 2 years and working perfect, I read good and bad reviews of greens, but maybe is for windows users etc... I go for the 2tb green ;) I want just for store my cd collection... not for work of hard things...

    Hello,

    Go for more RAM. 2GB these days is not that much.

    People that don't like Greens don't use them correctly: they were never designed for main or working drives. If you're planning to "store" music, movies or other files, then they're perfect.
