there are many. Try searching for acpi or sensors.
apt-cache search 'acpi|sensors'

Install the lm-sensors package. This will monitor everything you want including HD temps.

Lm-sensors does not monitor hdd temperatures. You will need hddtemp for that.
In general, you will need lm-sensors, configured, and some other app, like conky, gkrellm or some panel applet.

For your gpu temp you simply rely on the gpu driver.

GkrellM is easy to configure (No editing configuration files. Just GUI.) and can display almost as much as Conky, but is not as pretty.

If you install (and configure) LMSensors and also install HDDtemp then KSensors will aggregate data from both.
