Hello and welcome to the forums
HDD doesn't make a difference in games(in terms of FPS).It only affects loading times.So if you need fast load times,you better get a SSD.
But if you only can get a HDD,I recommend WD CaviarBlack/Samsung F3 series.Theyr'e both good.

Amazon's prices are a little better and a lot of things ship free, but Newegg is good for letting you do a side by side comparison of products and is more detailed.
