Yes, assuming your motherboard/BIOS is not so ancient that it will not support it. I do not know the limit off hand, But I use a 500Gig SATA drive and 1Tb drives are now very common for windows 7. Many advanced users recommend partitioning larger drives (operating system, programs, files) but this is not a requirement, Windows 7 will work fine with one large drive with one single partition.
