let me get this straight u want to remove the hard drive thats in ur older pc and put it in ur new build? if thats the case then before u do anything just be sure that ur new motherboard supports the old HDD and that it supports its type if its SATA
and to answer ur question everything on that old hard drive will become visible in ur new pc that is u will have the same files and same OS in ur new pc but its better to reinstall windows

You provided zero info about the new build OR the old build except for the HDD size. Windows will have to be reinstalled. You may be able to do an "over the top" install.
