Looking for a Gooseneck hitch for my truck.

I recently got a gooseneck trailer to pull my truck. I dont have a hitch in my truck and im finding many different oppinions. I seem to like the B&W turnover ball hitch, It is on the lower price scale and looks like a easy install, but was told its not a good desighn? Is anyone useing that hitch? Do you like it? Or which hitch do you recomend? Dont want to spend a million bucks but i want something that will work for me. I have a 1997 F-350 Powerstroke that will be pulling it.
Thanks for your input!

I've got a B&W turnover as well and I used to pull a 40' Big Tex with it and never had any problems.

I prefer the goose hitch on fifth wheel rails myself, that way you can pull a fifth wheel camper also, just pull 4 pins and exhange the hitches. You can find the rails for about $100, and the goose hitch for about another $250, Works great for me!
