Want to buy SSD. Migrating OS question.

So I'm thinking about buying this baby: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147247

I already have a computer with a 2TB HDD.

I want to put Windows and possibly a few other essential programs on the SSD.

Anyone know how I can do that?

    New SSD. There are a few ways to do it.

    1. I always recommend just a fresh install on the new SSD
    2. Reduce the total space on your current C drive to 80% of the actual space of the SSD, and migrate
    3. There is one application that can probably migrate only the OS. http://www.paragon-software.com/technologies/components/migrate-OS-to-SSD/
    It is not free.
    4. See #1.

    Good choice on the SSD.
