2 WD blue hdd's vs 1 WD green hdd?

I already have one blue and it is almost full. I use it manly for storing things like picture,music and games. Accessing them at a faster rate is important but not as much important as the space. Which of these do you think would be better for me considering the cost difference as well? Thank you

How are you going to be using the two Blue drives? I mean, is it going to be two 1TB Blue and a 2TB Green (or something like that), or will the Blue's be in RAID 0?

Two 1tb blues or one 2tb green, thats what i would do unless something is better.

I'd say go with the two Blues unless money or SATA ports are of a concern. That will allow you to have two separate drives for your data, giving you some safety for the data if you use one to back the other up, even partially.

If you have a lot of music, pictures and movies then I'd go for the Green and store them all on there. Games I'd put on the Blue so loading times aren't absolutely atrocious. The slower the drive the longer the loading times, faster the shorter.
