I have a pretty good rig . GTX 580, i7 950 processor, 12 GB memory But my seagate 1 TB hard drive lets me down. 
 
Can I get some feedback on what Hard Drives are good for loading times, Bootup. But also just practically good for gaming . Price range not a problem but Not over say $600 thank you

No hard drive is better than a solid state drive for gaming.  From Maximum PC Best SSD for Gaming.  The 1 TB model is under $350.

If you really wanna play games without compromising your PC speed, then I suggest going with gaming SSD card rather than depending on the built-in hard drive. I used to face drastic speed lags, then somebody suggested me to use SSD card, now I am using Samsung 960 Pro SSD card and playing my favorite games. I suggest you go through this reference guide Gaming SSD before investing in any SSD card, this would help you finalize your purchase.
