It's good value, but the platter density won't quite make up for it only spinning at 5400 RPM. If OP really wants a 2TB drive, it's not a bad choice.

Doesn't seem like much, but when the drives are hammered with loading/unpacking the many small files they'll need to loading game levels, the extra seek time on the F4 will bring it down some. It's access time/seek time that will seperate the two, which is why a spinning disk RAID array wouldn't be much of an advantage.
