Here is a good replacement drive (1 TB 7200 RPM 3.5" Hard Drive). The one shown in the picture is from Toshiba.

You may also want to consider using a hybrid drive, which has an SSD and a hard drive in one package for increased performance, which you can find here (1 TB SSD Hybrid 3.5" Hard Drive) this is a Seagate drive.
