Programs will have to be installed again as well as all the drivers for your system.
If you wish to create an image of your hard disk then there are a few options.
1 being microsofts image backup program that comes with windows 7.
2 being some of the free ones but I don't know all their names as I use Acronis image backup software and it has never failed me. for less that USD$30, it is well worth the investment.
So your answer is mostly no, your games and such will require re-installation, your documents can be backed up quite easily.
