Your cpu does not have much to do with the hdd you may be getting...
technically you should have no problem by getting the largest hdd you can afford. what you may want to take into consideration besides your budget is:
what os you're using.. dos, win9x, xp, vista?
a. if you have dos the smaller you can get probably the better as you may not be able to create a large partition. (chances are you may not get anything new smaller than 40 gigs.. and that would be a big waste of money and hard drive room)
b. if you have win9x, your probably using fat32 for your filesystem meaning you may not be able to go above 32 gig when creating your partition and formating your drive.
c. if your using win xp or vista... and your planning on using NTFS when partitioning the drive instead of FAT32...(as you should unless your operating system is on a FAT32 partition) you can go for the largest hdd you can afford.
