I'm trying to decide on a new hdd I'm about to switch to the sandy setup and want a better HDD I do allot of gaming & Video editing. BUT! I install all my games on my second HDD 1T and it plays perfectly. So this will only be for the OS and a allot of video editing and encoding.

The first choice because of the larger capacity.

Not as much as you think. The Raptor has better random seeks, the Black has same/better continuous reads. Last I looked, the 750 was one of the slower Black series. The 640 and 1TB had denser platters, thus better speed/throughput.

I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)

really? so the 640 has a better platter. the reason I picked the 750 because it's the same price as the 640. but ok I'll work with the 640 instead. thanks

Also the price of the VelociRaptor is overpriced.
