new battery

Hello, i have a 2005 120d and for personal reasons I haven't been able to use it for almost 2 years. Its parked in my garage and I think its time to pull it back together and start using it again. My 1st concern is the battery, it is obviously dead by now. My question is, do I really have to buy the original battery at the dealer (costs US$500) or can I just buy a simple equivalent battery with same specs (voltage/amperage)?

This is one of many questions Ill have and I know you guys will help me through this since last time I used my car it was under warranty so I had nothing to worry about, now Im on my own =(

Thx a lot
