Hey Guys,

I have all of my new PC parts in transit and have a copy of Windows 7 ready to be installed when I get it. Well in my current computer I have 3 internal HDD's. 1 for Windows and misc programs, 1 for Steam game installs and 1 for non steam game installs. Well Im wondering if I will be able to keep the software installed on the 2 gaming HDD's and just do a Windows clean install on the Windows HDD.

Any thoughts? Im leaning towards a resounding NO! But Im hoping for a YES!

Not gonna happen. All programs need to be reinstalled on the new OS.
