Yes it will take a 1 TB to a 3 TB 3.5" SATA hard drive and smaller drives. The only problem you may run into is using the jumpers to slow the drive down to a transfer rate of 1.5 GHz, this info can be found on most drives by doing a search for the name of the drive and jumpers to get the setting. Here's how to install it: [invalid guide link]

Here are compatible drives that iFixit sells: http://www.ifixit.com/Mac-Parts/iMac-20%...

Yes, it is entirely possible to use that Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB hard drive in your iMac. Be sure to transfer the thermal sensor to the new dard drive as well.
