So I'm creating a project, First time i use an Arduino.

I'm using these 7.2, 4.7 Amp peak motors.

Does anyone have a suggestion which motor driver or motor controller will go well with these motors and Arduino?

You might consider this one http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/1213 or one of the other MC33926 based motor drivers that Pololu sells.

I'm wondering why you don't go with the ones that parallax recommends, on that page.
