Windows 7: How do I swap my D: HDD?

How do I swap my D: HDD?

I have my OS and utilities on my C drive and my games are on my D drive.
I have ordered a new 1TB HDD and would like to move all of my games on my D drive onto my new HDD and use the old D drive to do a backup onto.

Do I just copy everything over and rename the new HDD D: or is it more complicated?

Keep it simple.
I would,
1- Install new hard drive
2- Go into disc management and rename your "D" drive to another letter
3- format and name your new drive as "D"
4- copy files to new drive
