What's the best internal HDD for my build (price)?

I'm currently using a Western Digital Caviar Blue 250GB HDD. -----> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136771&nm_mc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r&cm_mmc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r-_-Hard+Drives-_-Western+Digital-_-22136771

I need a HDD that has more memory than this one (at least 500GB or better, anything more than 2 TB is too much for me). I would like SATA 6.0Gb/s and 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache, but I can go higher/lower.

My build:
Motherboard: Asus Maximus V Gene LGA
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131830&nm_mc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r&cm_mmc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r-_-Motherboards+-+Intel-_-ASUS-_-13131830

Processor: Intel Quad-Core i5 3.4 GHz

RAM: G. Skill Ripjaws 8GB (2x4GB)

Graphics Card: EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 2GB

I only included my build because I'm not sure if it needs to be compatible or not.

-Yes, I use an SSD.
-HDD needs to be 3.5"
-I use Windows 7 64-bit Professional

So, what's the best internal HDD that fits my build for the price? Thanks in advance!

    A 1 or 1.5 tb wd caviar blue or black (I have two 750gbs in raid 0 and even on their own, they are fast)
    Or a 1tb samsung f3
    Your choice really, every sata drive should work

    $65 and a solid HD. 1 TB is excessive imo, but for another $30-$40 you could always snag a 1TB drive of similar quality.

    Also, generally speaking anyway. If it's a sata drive it'll be compatible.
