Help choosing a genral purpose mosfets to buy in bulk? Answered

Hi, I am looing at buying  some mosfets in bulk. I need a mix of genral purpose N-channel annd P-channel mosfets. These have to be able to handle up to 40V and around 5 amp. These will be used for genral motor controlling and inductive loads. But mostley for prototyping.

I need a mosfet that is cheap, takes a bit of a bashing, robust, and easy to use.

Any suggestions on what I should get. I need both P channel and N channel mosfets for genral use.

Thanks for any help, David.

What gate voltages are you proposing ? I like the IRL 540 for general logic level inputs, but you sacrifice a bit of Rds (on)

Sorry I should have said that in the question. I am looking for using it at gate voltages from around 3.3v to about 8v. I know that that is a broad spectrum but hopefully there is something out there. I was going to use it with by arduino (atmel328) at 5v most of the time. I was also looking at sending some PWM signals for speed controll.

Like I said then , the IRL series are pretty well ideal for your range
