Hard Drive Upgrade Help Requested

I looked through some older post but did not really find an answer so i will ask here.... so if this is a repeat question.
I am wanting to upgrade to 1TB drive from my existing 320GB primary drive in a Mac Pro. I am thinking I can do a "clone" of my primary drive to the new drive and then use the "cloned drive" as my primary.
Like I said, I am thinking along these lines but not sure if this is even really possible. I would like suggestions of what would be the best way to achieve this upgrade with the understanding that my system today is running fine with no issues. I don't think there is anything to be gained by doing fresh install since all is good at this point.
I am running Lion 10.7
Thanks for your help

You can easily clone a drive using programs like SuperDuper or carbonCopyCloner
the cloned drive will be an exact cloned bootable copy, then its just a matter of installing the new drive
iFixit does some great guides about how to pull apart and upgrade just about any component in just about any macMember of the Month September 2008 & August 2012 | Found advice useful? – use the rep system
