I have a pretty good rig . GTX 580, i7 950 processor, 12 GB memory But my seagate 1 TB hard drive lets me down. 

Can I get some feedback on what Hard Drives are good for loading times, Bootup. But also just practically good for gaming . Price range not a problem but Not over say $600 thank you

Definitely get an ssd, but aside from that I don't really know any good brands in particular.

samsung evo, especially if you find it on sale. There is also the mushkin reactor which is really good. You really can't go wrong with one of those. ARe you looking for a main hard drive, or do you want a boot drive that is seperate?

Yes. SSD for boot & games, standard drives for data.

Samsung Evo 850 Pro is hard to beat.

wait you bought an external harddrive? that is terrible for gaming. Also, mybooks are not good harddrives AT ALL. You came here to ask a question and have one of the more knowledgeable people on harddrives respond and then you bought one of the worst externals you can buy? I am so confused right now.

He's an advertiser. The funny thing is he's so bad at advertising that this is what happened.

I knew something was up when "I have a pretty good system" was followed by a GTX580 and a first generation i7

Yeah. Any time a random person joins just to talk about something random you can rest assured they're about to start advertising.
