First time build
Most new motherboards do not have IDE connections. You may need an add-on card to provide IDE connections. My recommendation would be to replace the HD and install the Operating system and software on it. Other files can be copied to it. Your old version of windows will not have the correct drivers on it for the new motherboard. A newer drive will likely be faster than your old drive due to better caching.
