Yes, it will not matter if the BIOS matches.

He may have been thinking of the registry in the OS, but the links that ssc456 and I posted work around any of those issues.

That looks like a micro ATX motherboard. It also looks like you will need at least two IDE connections.

What computer is that and do you know the complete specifications of it?

Install and run PC Wizard. It will tell you nearly everything you need to know about the insides of your computer.
