Best Water Pump for the Money?

I have a pot in my front yard that I have converted into a fountain, the water flows on the outside of the pot into a catch basin then back up to the pot with a submerged pump. I went to fill it with water (now that it is spring) and discovered the pump no longer works I think the pump froze and cracked in the winter (I thought I had drained it good enough... guess not).
What in your opinion is the best pump that is not overly expensive? I am looking for a pump that will pump about 700 gph and a head height of about 8 feet (4 feet at the minimum). Any advice is greatly appreciated, thanks!

Mag pumps are great for the money... They make a couple of models that would work well for the application you are shooting for.

I also have an eheim which I love, but it is a bit more expensive since it so quiet running... but quiet really isn't important for your application.
