You can clone your HDD to your SSD on a different computer, but a fresh install is always best. Since you wouldn't be swapping motherboards your key should be good.

Either spend the extra money for the Pro, or get one of these or a Force GT.

The Adata is worse than getting the Samsung. I said get one of the others because the 840 is slightly slower than the pack but still better quality than getting an Adata SSD.

I changed it back to the 840, but everything looks good?
