Okay, thanks everyone I know the order that I will do it now. I'm going to now:

1) Copy files to external drives

2) Format current HDD

3) Install windows 7 to SSD

4) Use activation key from copy of windows 7 (I built this computer so it's not on the computer itself.)

5) Move user folders back to HDD
