There will be some models of both brands that excels and those usually have 5 year warranties on them. I have a Seagate Constellation 1TB in my i5 system and it's a server drive with a 5 year warranty. I have an old WD Green 500gig drive in my other build that's working since 2006. It was in my old AMD system and now in my i3 system I built in the last month of 2012.
