    Ok so here is the back story to my question.

    Late 09 mb 6,1

    Upgraded to 4gb mushkin ram.
    Swapped orig hd for seatgate momentus 7200 rpm 320 gb

    Bought 500gb wd av hd with 32 mb cache.

    Performance is good with either hd but the 500gb seems a bit slower than the seagate Due to rpm diff.

    Which drive would you use. Space is not a concern. I keep 250 gb for osx o. Either drive. Use rest for bootcamp w7, ubuntu and shared space.

    If Seagate feels faster and the extra rpm is not causing any issues (noise, vibration, battery life), then use it.
