Default HDD lifespan

For budget reassons i plan to reuse my current HDD for my recent build.Its a seagate 500gb...about 5 years old 7,200 spindles speed.My new PC will not use this drive as boot drive as I have a 256gb SSD so the old drive will be for useless progs music, pics and the such.My concern is age and relaibility with such an older drive....should I pony up the cash or should i be fine for 4-6 months?
