Yes that will be the right size. The best way to do it would be following these steps:

1. Shut down your computer and remove the battery
2. Press the power button a few times to discharge any residual electricity
3. consult your laptop's service manual on removing the optical drive
4. remove the optical drive.
5. Insert the new HDD into the caddy
6 Insert the caddy into the laptop
7 Screw the caddy in with the optical drive screw(s)
8 Battery in & power up
