What is the max drive I can use?

I just ordered a 750 GB Seagate hard drive upgrade kit from ifixit...it hasn't even arrived yet and a friend suggested that I double check to make sure my Macbook can support it.

The Macbook I am looking to upgrade is a model A1278

Late 2008 with 2 gig Intel Core 2 Duo and a 160 GB hard drive.

The new 750 drive I ordered should arrive today, so I want to make sure it will work before I open the package.
