IMO skip 8 and go to 10 or stay with 7, you will be better off in the long run.  Wasting $ on 8 does not make sense when you can redo you 7 free as long as you have a valid COA sticker or jump to 10 and use the $ a little more wisely.

If your Samsung has no defects now...you can simply install the new hard drive (as a secondary drive) and the clone the old contents onto the new drive.  Macrium Reflect is a good program for such cloning.


I agree with Phil about Win 8, there's no point in installing it at this time.
