WD5000AACS is just tad bit better, but nothing you would notice a difference off of

Arn't the GP just more energy efficient?

I got 2x 500GB AAKS and 2x 320GB AAKS drives and all 4 of them get awesome speeds and no problems so far :)

If you want faster speed, there's Western Digital's Raptor drives that operate at 10,000RPM, but they're more expensive and the highest storage capacity so far is 150GB. If you're not worried about that, go for the 500s. They'll suite you fine.
