First install the SSD in your PC. Unplug all other HDD from the motherboard. Have only the SSD attached to the motherboard. Then go into your bios and change the settings from IDE to AHCI This shows you how. It might not be exactly the same in yours, but close. Help me change my SSD to AHCI instead of IDE! - Day One Patch Boards After it is changed, then get your Win 7 disk and and start the install. The clean install on a SSD is no different than on a HDD. Use this tutorial to guide you. Clean Install Windows 7 You will enjoy the SSD.

I will mark this as solved whenever I figure out if I can use my ibuypower windows 7 reinstallation disc and use the product key on side of my computer to activate windows. I want to be *100% sure
Also could I just use my current cables that are connected to my HDD to hook to SSD (Power, and Sata 3) Since it's already connected to where i need it to be? Or do I need to use the ones that came with my SSD?

Correct, just insert the DVD and boot your computer and the install will start. Be sure all other HDD are not connected to the motherboard when you boot. There is no need to uninstall from the HDD. When you install on the SSD, it will become the C: drive and will boot from there automatically. The HDD with Windows will become some other letter. You can worry about that at a later time.
