Best Oil Filter

Just curious what oil filter you guys like to run, I have used the Napa Gold, but just wonder if there is something better, that costs less preferably? Not a bypass, just a regular oil filter, I have seen the Motorcraft at Wal-Mart for $10, is it good for a 5k change interval?
Your thoughts and suggestions appreciated

Welcome to the org., any 15w40 oil is good. But then there is Amsoil and royal purple that are synthetics. Cost more but you can run a lot more miles on the oil. I usually use Castrol GTX. Or borrow it from work( I take it back after I'm done with it). We have conoco. All turbo approved.
