Should be fine. It's rare to find a hard drive that isn't compatible with a certain motherboard.

Another question, since the hard drive (WD Blue 1 TB Desktop Hard Drive: 3.5 Inch, 7200 RPM, SATA 6 Gb/s, 64 MB Cache - WD10EZEX) says Sata. Would that mean a Sata Cable is used to connect to the motherboard? Would I have to open the case to check for space?

Yeah, you connect the hard drive to the motherboard via a sata cable. I don't think you will need to open up your case for any reason.
