Ok so I am buying for my upgrade.
My current system is i7-930 o.c. to 3.7 ghz, gtx 480 gpu, 129gb ssd, 1.5tb hdd (2x 750gb caviar black) in raid 0.
I got a ASrock extreme4 z77 mobo, zalmann cooler, 16gb of gskill 1866 ram, and will buy a 3570k cpu.
I'll use my case, drives, gpu, psu, and fans.
My question is about the process of changing out the mobo/cpu.
I have my original oem win 7 64 bit os disc.
I don't want to lose anything on my ssd or hard drives.
So after I assemble, what is the exact process to get my system up and running, fully operational before I get on to overclocking?
I built my current computer 3 years ago or so but it was my first build, and it was from scratch. I also don't remember exactly what I did in terms of bios updating and if that was done after windows or before. I feel kinda out of it on the process and just want to be sure I do it right.
Thanks for your guidance!
