If you do clone, make sure the partition(s) are smaller than the side of the SSD. Then you can run CloneZilla; I HIGHLY recommend doing a disk to image, and then an image to disk clone. It takes longer... but it's safer. I tried doing a disk-to-disk clone from HDD to SSD on my friend's laptop... needless to say I spent about 12+ hours trying to get his original HDD to boot because something went wrong during the clone and it affected his original drive.
After you clone though, if you're on Windows 7, run a chkdsk c: /b
The /b switch was made after Win7 for cloning drives; it resets the badsector flags, and re-scans the drive.
My c partition is 50gb so it should be fine. Thanks for the tip and help. And everyone else as well ofcourse.
