You want a drive with a 50 pin SCSI interface - if you get a drive with a 68 pin interface, you will need an adapter, which will only increase your costs...

I would suggest Plextor drives highly, but there are many good name brands that are also good. Plextor drives are quite reasonable on the used market when compared with their quality, but there are cheaper drives - you typically get what you pay for.
