or

Western Digital Caviar SE WD1600JS 160GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144415
Yes
The seagate has a 16MB Cache while the WD only has 8.

You will see a diference when transfering/writting large files.
The quality between seagate and western digital isn't that different. But try to buy a drive with a 16 MB Cache.
