1tb is equal to 1000gb. So double the original one. Like I said though I would recommend a better cpu cooler if you plan on overclocking.

WOW then im going to get that exact build, and im looking at good am3 heatsinks that will keep my temp at an avg level but i cant find any that are $20.00 but thats what i prefer on spending on a cooler. But if anyone has experience with a cooler that is great and not expensive please let me know. oh and i dont care about how loud it is i like to listen to music when im on the computer anyways. again, thanks a lot guys for the replys!

cpu cooler- Amazon.com: Zalman CNPS9900LED Ultra Quiet CPU Cooler: Electronics

thermal compound- Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING Arctic Cooling MX-4 AC-MX4 4 gram (g) All-Around Thermal Compound
THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED I REALLY APPRECIATE IT!, i posted links so if anybody wants to use this build. the TOTAL SUM = $660

i see that you say you aren't using the power supply that comes with the case. but you do not have a power supply unit listed, and I really hope you are NOT using the one that comes with the case.

case in point (no pun intended)

Newegg has a pretty nice power supply up for sale today as a shell shocker deal. It's 700w and only $50. I would definitely take a look at it but keep in mind that the deal is only good for today.

Just looked at the cpu cooler that you picked out and I noticed that is is only for a motherboard with a Socket A. Your motherboard has an AM3 cpu socket so it is unfortunately incompatible. There is no reason why the stock heatsink and fan won't work, but if you plan on overclocking I would highly recommend getting a better quality cooler to prevent your cpu from overheating.
