To make a long story short I'm slowly purchasing parts to basically rebuild my pc.

I'm getting a new MOBO, new CPU (AMD Phenom II quad core), new RAM 8gb, a new case, and a new or extra graphics card.

I have a 700 watt power supply which i recently upgraded and installed in my current pc that i'll be using as well as the dvd drive.

I also want to keep the 640gb HD with Windows 7 64 bit installed that came with the gateway pc i bought about a year or 2 ago. Can I do this? I don't really want to purchase a new HD and a new OS as that'll be like 200 bucks which I don't have. I didn't think that this would be a problem so i already purchased the case and the ram. Which will be a complete waste if I have to wait 6 months to be able to afford all these extra parts...

Can someone help... if i try it will it mess up the new parts?
