I need an advice on purchase of secondary HDD. I am planning to by a 3TB SATA III HDD

First I would like to tell you guys my present relevant PC Config:
Processor: Intel Core i7 - 2600K
Mobo: Asus P8Z68 - V PRO/GEN3
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 1600MHz
SSD: 90GB Corsair Force GT SATA III (Primary Boot Drive)
HDD: 1. Seagate 250GB SATA II
2. Seagate 500GB SATA I

I use this computer for two main purposes: Mediocre Gaming & Heavy Photo Editing
I went through the choices I had. I am pretty much Impressed with the Barracude 3TB drive[Model: [ST3000DM001]. Barracuda XT seems better but the question is do I need that much performance?
The only issue I am facing is in India the drive has just 1 year warranty and that scary!

So should I go with Barracuda model or do I have better choices according to my usage?

Cheers,
Thanks in Advance
Update: I am not into video editing at all, Just photo editing..
Also do I need the XT version? Even M voting for Barracuda plain :)
