Reinstall Windows 7 for new build? Any updates for new build?

I have already bought the following items and should receive them in a couple of days:

CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 645 Propus 3.1 GHz 95W OEM

GPU: SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit

PSU: SeaSonic S12II 430B 430W

Cooler/Fan: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus


I will be switching my old computer parts for the new ones. I will be keeping the MoBo, Case, HDD and DVD Burner. Here are the specs for those-

This is my first time building a new PC. Basically, I am confused to what I need to install SOFTWARE wise in order to make this transition? Do I have reinstall my Windows 7 copy? BIOS updates? uninstalling/reinstalling drivers? ANY tips are appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

  1. So you're upgrading an old PC? You should only need to install drivers for the new graphics card. Windows is tied to your mobo and hard drive, and BIOS is tied to your mobo.
  2. just remember that hp can be a ass sometimes and not use standard mounting.
