Today I will be installing a new CPU/Mobo combo. The CPU and Mobo manufactures are different than the original (AMD to Intel). I am assuming I will have to re-install Win8.
Can I copy everything over (games and documents) to my HDD and just do a fresh OS install on the SSD (which is the current home of my Win8)? Thus, leaving the HDD ready to roll once I have everything else installed/hooked up.

Yes, you need to reinstall.
Anything you installed will likely have to be reinstalled, the OS won't know what to do with all the pointers and such they create.
