So, what is the latest and greatest yet affordable OS drive to get these days? SSD and what brand, make?

I'm sure something like this has been posted somewhere on this forum before but I didn't see it and I need some help ASAP. Here's what happened:
I came home and found my computer on the boot screen trying to boot to cd. I then went into bios and found that the boot sequence had been changed to the cd drive from the hard drive. I knew in the back of my head what Probably happened but was hoping maybe not and changed the boot sequence back to the original hd and tried to restart. It got to the windows screen, went theough the motions for a second and then blue screen flash and went back and restarted all over again. Since then when I start up, I get to the safe mode screen and no matter what option I pick, networking, dos prompt, last know etc, I get blue screen and back again.
So, my questions are: what is the easiest path to a functioning computer from here? Can I still ghost the drive? I checked the connections and the are all good, checked everything inside the of and it seems to be fine. Should I just get another hd and reinstall the os? I do have all my important data backed up, but I'd really like to get some of my software, little things here and there that were on C: and have them again, is there any way to restore it or ghost and put it on a new drive? What other options do you all think I have?
I really appreciate the help
