    Default Hard Drive Question

    Hi,
    Could someone tell me what are the differences between a 2mb cache and an 8mb cache on a hard drive ,why should I purchase the 8mb over the 2mb ? The Hard drives in question are:

    1)Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 Plus (ST3120026A) 120 GB Hard Drive 8mb
    2)Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 (ST3120022A) 120 GB Hard Drive 2mb

    Cheers
