I'm new to building my own pc(2nd time). The question I have is can I just transfer my important files from my primary drive to my secondary drive, then wipe my primary, throw the new motherboard,processor,power supply and vid cards i just got from newegg(<---the BEST) into my case. Plug everything back in, then just load up windows onto my primary drive and go? thanks for your time.

The general answer is yes you can copy your files such as game files, drivers, etc. to the spare drive and have them ready for your new system. I suggest you do not connect the spare drive to the new system until you have installed the OS on your new drive.

Thanks for the reply. I noticed that you have a raptor as well. I plan on reusing this thing until it melts.

Actually, I have two and at least one will always be in my gaming box until something better comes along. ;)
