I have Windows 7 Ult and about 200GB of other programs and was wondering whats the best way to move the OS and the important programs (while keeping larger games installed on the old HDD) to a new SSD. Thanks in advance.

Just do a new installation of windows on the SSD without the HDD plugged in first. After installation, plug in the HDD and copy whatever you need from there.

Can I just image the drive and be over with it? Since the SSD can hold everything I have, I just didnt want to fill it 90%.

I did that with my laptop and it was just plagued with problems, I wouldn't suggest it.

it will be exactly as it is now. Only you will be on the SSD rather than HDD. Saves the hassle of reinstall too.
