Forming a conditional clause in present and present tense?

I just learend the conditional and past subjunctive. Here is an example: > If I had a million dollars, I would buy a big house. > > Si tuviera un millon dolares, compraria una casa grande. So I'm just wondering how I would say it in present tense. A friend told me this: > If I have a million dollars, I will buy a big house. > > Si tengo un million dolares, comprare; una casa grande. If she is correct, why is it `tengo` instead of `tenga`? Aren't we expressing uncertainty/doubt here? Thank you!
