New SSD onto a new build

Hi sorry for the quick noob question..

I just upgraded my rig by installing a new SSD with windows 7 on it.
While doing this I first unplugged my original HD.

Now that the installation is complete, I am unsure if I have to completely wipe my original HD. Is this true? If so, how do I do this? Thanks!! :)

    You should have no problem reconnecting it and accessing files on it.

    You can just delete what you don't want, or you can completely delete everything.

    So it makes no difference in terms of performance if I completely wipe the HD or leave it? It won't increase my chance of bugs or errors? I still have windows 7 on the HD.. I'm not sure if that changes things.
  3. No, you can delete the windows 7 files on the HD if you want. You may have a problem getting rid of the hidden recovery partition that was put on it originally.
