Importing .PST File into Existing Outlook Account

If i import a .PST file into an existing Outlook account will the whole of the existing .PST file be overwritten or only parts that already exist?

Somebody wants to get hold of a load of old contacts and email off an old dead computer. I've copied the .PST file to the new computer but don't want to proceed with the import process until I know what will happen.
