Default How to make a HDD recovery

I plan on starting my own PC build. After all is done I wanted to do two things before I install any sofware. I want to make a copy of the HDD in case it crashes and I want to make a copy of the old ATI CCC drivers. I need to use 10.5 drivers in order to play COD. So my question is how do I do that? How do I create a HDD recovery CD and how do I save video drivers. Also what type of media device would I use for both (CD, thumb drive..)?

So would you use winzip for the ATI drives and the clonezilla for the HDD?

That is what he said. Win Driver Backup to backup drivers. Clonezilla to image the drive.
