Upgrading to a new system soon, question on moving a storage HDD
So very soon I'll be upgrading my Q6600 system to a i5-3570k system, and I had a hard drive question.
Basically right now I have two hard drives: an SSD I use to boot windows/minor programs and files, and another HDD that technically has windows installed on it but I only use it for storage. All of my Steam games and all of my games in general are there, and I basically use a shortcut from the Steam application on the HDD to run all my games.
My question is if I literally just take that hard drive and move it into my new system and never boot that version of windows on it (I never do anyway) will there be any problems? Like if I continue to buy and install Steam games there won't be any registry errors because it's on a totally new system, it can just be a seamless transition?
I want to avoid wiping it and reformatting (redownloading 150 Steam games is not my idea of a weekend). Any ideas or problems with this scenario?
Thanks in advance,
