Default Floppy Drive?

Does it really matter what kind of floppy drive I buy, I forgot the computer I am selling does not have one so I am ordering one tonight.

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...103-109&depa=0 would this be an alright one, just need a standard, nothing special

Apart from the colour (to match the PC case) they are all the same.
