We have an SQL Server 2008.  I have one db that is passing 1 GB.  I have over 600,000 records on one of the tables.  I would like to add more tables with many more records coming.  Are there any capacity issues that I will run into?

Nowhere close - we have 500GB+ databases. See: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143432.aspx

The first bottleneck you may run into is disk IO so you may wish to monitor perfmon statistics before and after you expand to do proper capacity planning

Here is the list of maximum capacity specifications for SQL Server.  There is database size limit of 524,272 terabytes.  A 1 GB database is tiny.  The number of rows is limited by the available storage.  You should be safe there as well unless it's on a drive without a lot of disk space.
