The WD 640 regular (& BLACK) is a much better drive than the 500s (even a 640 regular compared to 500 BE). I own both and my 640s are much faster, both as OS and storage drives. IMHO worth the extra couple bucks over the 500.

EDIT: just checked and the 500 BE is a little over 92 bucks...the 640 regular is 93. A buck savings is not worth going with an older gen HDD. Heck the 640 BE is only 97!
