I upgraded my main PC's 2 x 500 GB Seagate 7200.10 to 2 x 640 GB WD Blacks and I have noticed real improvements. The 640 GB Blacks are faster, quieter (I can barely hear them even during heavy seek activity and even when running Virtual Machines off the second drive), and run cooler than the drives they replaced.

I got them from Infonec where they are still currently selling for 90 bucks:
