Getting ready to build a new rig and have decided on taking the SSD plunge. I've currently got my heart set on Intel's 160GB model.
Obviously, I'd like to have the OS (currently running Windows 7 HP) as well as my regularly used programs installed on the SSD. I'll use a WD Black HDD for data storage.
My question is: Do I have to do a clean install of Windows onto the SSD?
Ideally, I'd like to just "copy" everything that's on my current HDD onto the new SSD. Somehow, I don't think it's as easy as right clicking on C: and CTL+C... (I chuckled at the thought of that).
Is imaging software required in this situation? Is it even possible to do what I'm describing?
