assuming you would use the computer for 12 hours
a day normally, the computer using 200W over those 12.
1 Kw Hour = 10p say.
1 day = 12*200/1000 = 2.4 Kw hours
300 days = 720 Kw hours = 7200p = 72

I think I'd go for the spare HD. And perhaps save
the environment a tad too (yes - the 2nd HD has
enviro impact ...)

I think my PC uses quite a bit more than 200W as well.
Im assuming you never let the disks spin down, so the
Powersave features arent affecting the drives?
