I don't want to get the seagate barricuda for 80ish since I heard the failure rate is high I also don't want the Western Digital Caviar Green because of the slower speed

So what else is there?

what will you be using the drive for? the 2tb seagate hybrid drive has had good reveiws and i just recently bought a 2tb wd red and they have not only a good warranty with a dedicated rma service but 24/7 dedicated support

I have that Seagate 2TB drive for the past 5 months with 24/7 operation, no problems but msybe I just got lucky.

WD Black 2TB is a great choice.

I would take the silence over reliability. Plus by the time you get the raptors you could have bought 6 1tb greens and put them in a raid 10

but then you'll need a raid card, no?

If your chipset has raid then no. And for raid 0/1/10 the chip set is fine for it. It's only with higher raids you need a raid card to get the performance.
