My choice on this would be the Seagate 2TB FireCuda Gaming SSHD (Solid State Hybrid Drive) - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5-Inch Hard Drive (ST2000DX002) This will give you a much faster appearing machine.

You will also need an OWC In-line Digital Thermal Sensor for iMac 2011 Hard Drive Upgrade to prevent run away fan.
