Default Need a new HD for my PS3. Any recommendations?

the topic says it all I need a new hard drive for my PS3. I'm looking at the 320 to 500gb range and looking to spend $45 to $60 total. All the info I have seen on upgrading the HD is old and outdated. Can anyone tell me what I should be looking for in a new Hard drive?

If you're not going solid-state, any 2.5", 7200rpm drive will do. Hitachi, WD, Samsung, Seagate......

Im just gonna put this here in case anyone comes looking for information in the future.

When I went to reload my new hard drive I had to do a couple extra steps that werent mentioned in the places I looked.

You need to save the general PS3 update to a flash drive or something and install it before going through with restoring the backup. I watched 3 video's on swapping hard drives and no one ever mentioned this step.
