Hello guys ...
So my pc was slow on boot and after trying everything (start-up programs disable, adding more size of ram dual channel and upgrading cpu) i got a SSD after a friend adviced me to, the problem is i have some services on my PC that was a PAIN to setup and troubleshoot... is there any way i can migrate my OS (windows 8 64-bit) to my SSD instead of re-installing the OS all over ?

Many SSD's come with utility software to clone your current HDD to the SSD
I got an Intel SSD which came with Acronis and my Samsung 830 came with Ghost (but now comes with their own tool).
So if you use that.. and your current space usage means it will fit your new SSD - you can use that.

If it does not - a free tool like Macrium reflect software should suffice

Worked fine for me.
