Move from HDD to SSD

I'm thinking about upgrading to an SSD, but having read up on things like moving Users and other things to a normal SATA drive (so that it doesn't kill the SSD quickly), I'm thinking of doing things in a strange way.

Before I go an buy the SSD, I'm thinking about creating a new HDD partition of 40gb and installing Win7 to that drive and essentially treating it just like it was an SSD, and make all the necessary file structure changes.

I would then (once ready) clone that partition straight onto the SSD.

My question is, if I did the above, isn't that almost going to be the same as a clean install on an SSD?

Is there really any additional benefit of installing directly straight onto the SSD itself?
