get him a 120GB Western Digital 7200 RPM hard drive.
If he is a novice, it would work best since Windows XP only allows a partition less than or equal to 127MB.

Ummm... they said largest, didn't say anything about cheapest.

newegg.com

300GB, 5400RPM, IDE, Maxtor, OEM =$286.00
250GB 7200RPM, IDE, OEM = $210.00 starting price (brand varies)
