Planning to swap computer hardware.

I am currently running a Dell PowerEdge 1950 24 GB Windows 2008 R2 Standard
With SQL 2008 and WSUS.

I want to replace the 1950 with a Dell PowerEdge R210.

If I take the hard drives out of the 1950 and place them in the R210 and boot will I have any issues?

I am hoping that I do not need to reinstall.

What should I be looking for or concerned about

Memory is the same DDR3 ECC on both

Processor might be different but both same speed 3.2Ghz
