Hi, I currently have 120GB SSD and 1TB 2.5in HDD in my desktop PC and I want to format my PC and add an 2TB HDD in the near 2 - 3 months, will there be any problems with that ?
 
If you are planning on reformatting and installing WIndows to a new spinning 2 TB drive, you will likely be disappointed in the speed reductions....(boot times increased, delays opening/closing apps, etc..)

SSDs are/should be almost mandatory for an OS install these days....(1 TB models are coming down in price quickly, and the 500 GB models are now VERY affordable..even Samsung 860 EVOs are almost cheap now)
 
But to answer your question, there is no problem adding another drive is you have an available SATA port on your mainboard, SATA data and power cable, etc..

(Laptops, however, are often quite limited, often only having a pair of SATA ports)
