Using Old HDD for a new build

I'm going to build a new computer and i've decided to use my old hdd (wd blue 1tb 7200rpm) Mostly because i have my os on there.
I'm also going to be using the same graphic card so no worries there... But.. i'm guessing there is old motherboard drivers on this hdd? if so can i still install a new motherboard that has new other drivers onto this hdd? or will i f**k up the new motherboard?

    You will usually run into major problems trying to take a HDD from one computer and get it to boot up with another computer. There are more issues than just hardware drivers. I would spend some time on Google researching the issue so you don't have to take my word for it. If you want a stable system you will need to do a fresh install of the OS.
