Advice on Installing New SSD

I just purchased a crucial 256gb realssd C300 for my 2month old Lenovo x201(Win 7P 64bit, i7 640m, 8gb RAM). What is the best way to install the new SSD. I have read that a simple cloning may not be the best approach for optimal performance. Should I do a clean install by using the boot disk I made when I first got the x201 along with the recovery media disks, then reinstall all programs?
Thanks in advance.

    Nice information however, I think you may have posted this in the wrong thread as it has nothing to do with the OPs question.

    I agree with foscooter, do a clean install of everything. This will ensure correct alignment of the SSD and a clean registry
