Which forks are they?

as long as it's a 1-1/8 steerer tube, as long as you use the correct bearing race with the fork, it will fit whatever frame you want. You do NEED a new headset though, integrated. and it will come with the correct bearing race you need.

you also might need a new bottom bracket as well, what frame/bike is it?

yeah you'll need a new headset for sure with that frame, I can't tell what kind of bottom bracket you currently have though. can you snap a pic of it quick and post it here?
