I am building a new machine as soon as a better selection of X48 chipset motherboards become available. My current machine has an ASUS mobo with an NVIDIA chipset. In the past I have tried to upgrade this motherboard to an Intel board and found that in order to do so, I would need to do a clean install of Vista, because of chipset incomparability issues.

I have several hundred dollars of programs that I purchased on line on my current drive. All my data is backed up on an external HD (Western Digital My Book).

When I do my new build, is there a legal and reasonably simple method of transferring my on-line purchased programs from my old HD to my new HD after a clean windows installation on the new machine?

Thanks

Any reputable company will let you download them again from the Customer Downloads area or similiar type area. You should be able to get them back.
