Just a quick question, im upgrading my pc with a new mobo (asus sabertooth z77) and new cpu (i5 2500k) IB reviews let me down so i pulled the trigger on the i5, anyways i have a crucial ssd with windows 7 64bit just wondering if my files will get erased? do i need to do a clean install if not? in 2010 i did the same thing but with an HHD and everything stayed the same but just wanna make sure with ssd

Hard to say, try it and see. Windows may not be very happy and will probably BSOD on login, but try it and see.

the old pc tech trick is before you shut down the old pc for good boot into windows safe mode are remove all the old driver in windows. if done right when windows reboots on the new pc it ask for or load the drivers needed for the new mb.
