Scott, check out the following links:

http://www.seagate.com/products/desktop-storage/desktop-internal-drives/

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Seagate-Bulk-Constellation-ES.3-1TB-SAS-6G/26779623

Scott, would you recommend against getting the Seagate Enterprise Capacity drive? After all, it apparently isn't made anymore.

I've been recommending Enterprise class drives for years now, including those from Seagate.

Seagate continues to produce Enterprise class drives.

Note that most PC users would want drives with a SATA interface vs. the SAS interface drive you linked to above. Newegg currently lists the same Constellation ES.3 1TB drive as you linked above (except with a SATA interface) for $23.59 less (both are free shipping): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6822178291

Scott.

This may be a dumb question, Scott, but would a relatively large amount of cache be all that helpful when it comes to hard drives?

Yes, but only when compared against drives with very similar specifications otherwise. Scott.
