Default Complicated Hard Drive Question

Hello all,
Right now I am running Windows XP on a SATA 1.5Gb/s 120GB 7200RPM
I am thinking about buying a raptor hard drive...or alteast an SATA Hard drive with an rpm of 10000 or 15000.
MY question is..., is there a way I could install that hard drive, mirror all my current operating system and evreything from my current primary hard drive over to that hard drive, and set the new faster hard drive as the primary hard drive with disrupting anything?

Yea, if you buy a western digital drive, it will come with a disk that will have these tools on it. theyre very nice, comes with everything you need, from formatting and partitioning, to drive to drive, partition to partition copying, and will even copy the MBR so it will boot correctly.
