Windows 7: SSD Format

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit SP1
SSD Format

I have a few issues with my system and it is time for a fresh install.

With an SSD drive can I just format and install Windows 7 from the Windows 7 disk to get the drive back to peak performance or do I have to do something else to the drive first before I format it?

It is a Corsair NOVA 128 GB SSD drive.
