Spinpoint F1 and VelicoRaptors are faster.

Samsung's F1 Series drives are real fast. The HD753LJ fits your budget and is 750GB which is plenty for an OS and a ton of games.

Well I just need enough space on it to run the OS and a few games. I'm not a huge gamer and I have another HD for storage. I would rather allocate the money to speed, rather then space.

Yea, I would say either a Raptor X or why not have some extra space and some decent speed.
The Samsung F1's are mighty nice, I went with it myself. And I have to say I'm very content with it.
