you'll be able to use any Sata HD for it if it has no IDE (or if u don't care to use an IDE). most, if not all, SATA 3.0gb/s drives have a jumper setting that makes them run in the slower SATA setting so you'll be set

edit------------------
i like Western Digital drives myself, i've had Maxtors go bad on me, but since Seagate owns Maxtor i'd bet the QC is a bit better. Seagate's are also great drives.
size depends on budget and your own space usage
