There should not be a problem with the drive. The disks only care about the motherboard really. However, if you've added any other hardware, remove that. Alternatively, put the large drive in an external eSATA or USB enclosure and use it as an external storage device, putting your programs on the original disk.
However, your product specs say it has 3 3.5" HDD bays, with 2 available. This surely means you can use the drive internally as well as your old one? If the new drive, as it probably is, is SATA you may need a power adapter, alternatively it may take either the SATA adapter or the IDE 4 pin Molex.
