Was wondering about this HDD. I'm not doing any type of NAS or RAID (Heck, Idk what they even are). I just need some more space for games. Should I go for it? I'll probably install a different OS on the one in my sig, and then have all my games and stuff on the one above.

I would go with a blue drive instead. I'm not sure what intellipower is, but it is not a 7200rpm drive like the blue or black.

Here is the blue, and it is cheaper.

Go with the Blue that Cheech posted. Blues are significantly faster.

That was sort of my main question, as to what intellipower was. But yeah, you're right. I don't even see the Rpms on there. As for the price, Theres an email promo that brings the red down to $65.

I guess I'll go for a Blue, or another Barracuda. I'll look around some more. Thanks guys.
