Obviously some see only what they wish to see, ignoring my first post...

Can't you just delete the D partition from within disk management in Administrative tools and then add that to the C partition without having to use a third party program?
I think you can do that in Windows 7
I edited my post #15 so you can now feel all warm and fuzzy

Formatting a windows partition just for the sake of deleting a partition and moving that space should have nothing to do with scalpels and rags unless your intending something for security purposes.

I never ignored your first post lol... I replied and say "I prefer to use GParted". Never said anything was really wrong with using Disk Management; just that GParted is better (and made a joke about Window's disk utility).

Plus that first post still has nothing to do with "formatting Windows" which is what you brought up (nowhere did I mention it, and you seemed to randomly bring it up lol).

"Formatting a windows partition" != "windows format"

You kept using the first phrase, rather than the latter which makes it look like you're talking about formatting the Windows C: drive.

See, I never mentioned "formatting Windows" or "formatting the Windows partition". I referenced the utility.

My mother finally had enough, went online, and bought a computer when I was out. This scared me a little, but nothing compared to what the price she spent. She spent 1575 dollars! This is what she spend it on....did she do good?

Oh yeah you will be good lol. That unlocked CPU at 4.0 GHZ and the GTX 770.... You will play anything on ultra.
Plus the SSD will do you real good on boot up times. Not sure if it comes preinstalled with the OS but just make sure to install windows on the SSD.
