Wait a few months for drive prices to drop again. They are way too expensive now.

7200 is noticeably faster.

I would get a Caviar Black from Newegg.

You can go with either a 5400 RPM or 7200 RPM drive. With the 7200 RPM, heat will increase, however.

Or get an SSD if price is no object. :3

The BD drive would inherently become the bottleneck in the system. It would lower the heat and power consumption though.
