Will I have to format used HDD for Dell inspiron 5150

I bought a used Dell inspiron 5150 w/ a 40gb ATA 2.5" Fujitsu HDD. I am looking at a Hitachi Travelstar 5K80 ATA 2.5" that has a bunch of stuff installed.
Would I have to format it though for my computer to recognize it, thus deleting all the installed software?
