Also, any recommendations on a good OS drive?
Any WD black drive with your desired capacity, or seagate barracuda

@OP

For storage, the Western Digital Green 2TB or the Samsung F4EG 2TB are solid choices, along with the Hitachi 5K3000 2TB. The Samsungs are the cheapest, but need the latest firmware to be applied before they are put into use. Look here for more information.

For an OS drive, the Samsung F4 320GB is probably one of the fastest choices out there.
