It went well, all I did was put the new hardware in, then use the USB to reinstall Windows and have it put my old "version" into the Windows.old then ran the disk from my Mobo.
Only trouble I had was I got a CPU power cable confused with the 8-pin PCI cable and freaked out, but soon noticed my trivial mistake. Also, I just reinstalled all my old programs just to be safe, instead of going around and copy/pasting stuff. My Skyrim Mods however remained intact without any copy-pasting at all, which was weird.
