Help with a hard drive switches

Recently my Athlon XP CPU and ASUS XP Motherboard burnt out, leaving me without some of the most important pieces of my computer.
Now as I am buying new parts knowing that things like my GPU and Ram will be salvaged just fine I ask if my two hard drives (1 60GB and 1 120 GB) will also be able to make the journey with their old information onto the new system. Both systems use XP, an Athlon XP CPU (althought the new CPU will be faster and an A7V333 to an A7V8X-X.
Since the technology gap is miniscule will the hard drives be able to retain their old information once put onto the new system, and are there any steps I can take to make sure they do (keeping in mind I can't access the old system as it's fried).
