I'm currently using a Western Digital Caviar Blue 250GB HDD. -----> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

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=N82E168...

Processor: Intel Quad-Core i5 3.4 GHz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E168...

RAM: G. Skill Ripjaws 8GB (2x4GB)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E168...

Graphics Card: EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 2GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

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!
