Installing Windows 7 on SSD

Hi, I am planning on moving to an SSD and am curious as to what will happen with my windows activation code, I've read on some forums already that using my current license I should be ok because I haven't re-installed windows in a little over a year now, other people are saying I will have to phone Microsoft. I really don't know which it is.

Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0Ghz
Intel DG43GT Mobo
Kingston 4Gb's (2x2) PC6400 DDR2
EVGA GTX 460 1GB EE
Corsair 750W
Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit

    If you're just upgrading your drive then you have nothing to worry about.

    When you change your motherboard then Microsoft considers that a "new" or "different" pc and that would count against your current license.

    I've upgraded my motherboard twice and have not had any problems with activating Windows 7.

    You said you have not re-installed in over a year so I'm pretty sure you have nothing to worry about.
