Where to mount?

Using KDE, and have two hard drives that I would like to permanently mount and use as... data storage in 90% cases and some for Wine games. Now bit puzzled where to mount them.
While googling for difference between /mnt and /media, ppl usually say that /media is for dynamically loaded devices and /mnt for more permanent, but others say that I have to mount them into /media, otherwise KDE won't be able to see them, or I should soft link them from /mnt to /media.

So... where to mount those disk so KDE can see them and I can normally use them?

Anywhere you want. Like /storage. Or /fhjldhsjghf.
