I just made a new pc with a ssd m.2. I will keep using the graphic card from old pc others will not. I want to move my hard drives from old pc to new pc as well. Now I have some question in mind.
1.I have 2 ssds a ssd m.2 and a hdd on board now, are there ganna be any issue?
2.Is it wise to move system from ssd to ssd m.2 for better boost speed?
3.Shall I keep those games & software or delete & reinstall them for compatibility reason?

Any other suggestion will be welcomed, appreciate for the help.

You can not "copy" Windows from one PC to another.

If you clone you existing install (ie clone your existing boot drive) to a new drive you will have all old (for the previous components) drivers and settings installed.

Depending on the differences between the new and old computer, and what Windows skew you have installed, Windows may not activate.

A new setup is always a good excuse for doing a new, clean, fresh Windows install.

You can use your HDDs from the old machine in the new one as long as all you want to access is data only. If you have the OS and programs installed on one of the HDDs, they will not work and you will need to delete them (I strongly recommend you backup your data before doing anything else with the old HDDs).
