Default Need a HDD for my build

AMD ATHLON II X2 255 CPU
Gigabyte GA-MA7705-UD3 Motherboard
Corsair XMS3 4GB DDR3 1600MHz
Samsung/LG/ASUS dvd-RW 24X optical
ATI 1024MB HD5770 Graphics card
Coolermaster Elite 330
COOLERMASTER 460 460w PSU
CPU Cooler Arctic cooling freezer 7 pro rev 2
WINDOWS 7 64-BIT OS
I've got this laid down, but need a 500gb HDD that would be decent, compatible and at a decent price, to.

Any ideas please folks?

Yep, that Western Digital drive is a popular one. Also consider the Samsung SpinPoint F3 drives which are pretty quick (for mechanical drives) and the 500GB version is fairly cheap nowadays too (I recently picked up the 1TB one for 38/$60!)

The 1TB and larger are speedy, but those smaller than that are just average.
