    Perhaps a seagate 7200.10 or a WD SE16 or a Samsung Spinpoint...but over all, HDDs are HDDs. I am pleased with my 320gb Seagate HDD, silent and runs fast.

    here you go: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16822144701

    Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD2500KS 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive $68

    IMHO there is no better choice for a single drive setup but if your doing raid then get the Caviar RE16 version because it has extra features just for raid.

    here is a review for you to compare hard drives: http://techreport.com/articles.x/10516

    it talks about the 500 but the 250 is listed as well and IMO is a hair better in tests.

    I'm selling 2x 80GB Hitachi Dekstar 7200rpm HDDs that have all of about 4 hours of use in them lol bought from newegg last month and haven't had time to work with the rig at all
    used in RAID 0 they're great, paid a little more than $45 each shipped
    asking $37.50 shipped each or $72.50 shipped for both

    I have a Seagate 'Cuda 7200.9 500GB that was approx $132 a few months ago, it's a great drive! Average read is only like 51mb/s, and burst is 255mb/s, but 500gb worked for me! I'm planning on another one or two drives, I have enough power connection/supply and like 5-6 more SATA connections.
    I hear the 7200.10's are quite better than the .9's, may be worth a look!
