New build questions

Just got finished building my new rig last night.. i have 2 questions...

1. I have a Radeon 7970 and i also have a Palit Geforce GTS 450 platinum that i want to use in conjuction with the Radeon.. I want to use the Geforce card for physx only... Any help on setting that up would be great..

2. I have a new SSD in my new build.. My old build had no SSD's.. what i wanna do here is figure out is there anyway to copy all my old software/games from the old hard drives without having to reinstall everything? fresh intall of win7 ultimate x64 is on the SSD.. And all my old drives are still intact but i want my SSD to be the boot drive since it will have greatest performance.. Win7 has something built in but i never used it.. is it any good?

Those are my questions..

AMD FX-8120 Zambezi 3.1GHz Socket AM3+
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3

    probs im having now is.. Cant get my 2TB drive to show up in Windows 7 64-bit.. i did minor research and read something about AHCI i tried enabling it but when i do Win7 refuses to boot.. so any help on getting my 2TB drive to show up would be greatly appreciated.. its in the control panel and device manager and everything.. but when i goto my computer its not there..

    Also still havent found an easy way to migrate all of my applications and settings i guess ill just fresh reinstall everything.. Im a gamer and this is gonna be a pain.. I play mainly MMO's and the downloads are huge.. swtor bf3 wow eq 1 and 2 i play all of those games and more.. i got 10mbit inet but it still will take long..
