Can a amd a6-3600 processor run windows xp

I had a Dell computer that was running windowws XP which will not power on any longer. So I purchased a new computer which has the AMD A6-3000 processor. I have some data on the old hard drive I would like to recover. Is it possible to put the old computer SATA hard drive in place of the new hard drive? The old computer was running windows XP. Can the new computer run the Windows XP program so I can retrieve the data from the old drive?
