should have absolutely no issues with it :)  if you're building from scratch, your mobo and PSU should even come with new cables that'll work with it!

Assuming you got the OS with the computer then it is OEM and cannot be transferred to another computer. The most basic definition of a new computer is a new motherboard. Other things like memory, hard drive controller, processor and video card come into the equation but the most significant is the motherboard.
