Default New hard drive

Im looking for a new hard drive for my computer, going to be getting a copy of windows 7 soon. My price range is $50, something with free shipping would be nice. I generally use my PC for WoW..maybe a game here and there like prince of persia or mirrors edge. So any advice on a good hard drive would be appreciated, thanks

Edit: This is the hard drive that I had in mine, but really dont know a whole lot about hard drives.

Depends on how much space you want. I just ordered this one the other day and put it in.

( - Western Digital Caviar Blue WD2500AAKS 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive ) They have a 320 Gig model as well for the same price, But this one has a 16MB cache. Also it has free shipping as well.
