Windows 7: Getting a new computer $800-$1000

There is no problem with the EULA since the OS stays on the same system. I have made a tutorial just for the purpose.

But if you think that is too complicated, get the Paragon Migration Tool for $19.95. That does the job in 3 clicks and never fails.

And for the physical installation, there are only 2 cables to attach. The power cable which is usually extra on the PSU and a Sata cable which you can get for $ 4.49 from here.

And don't worry, if you have questions along the way, we are here to help.

Im still too scared to do it because almost any parts of an electronic i touch the inside of breaks and I get really tempted to try rewiring things and messing with plugs and break it no matter what.

That's too bad because it is sooo simple and the benifits are great. Here are a couple of videos that show you how to do it. I would skip the bracket part and use the Velco dots. But the rest is really simple.

Yeah I know.. Maybe I should ask my friend who made over 10 computers all by himself.

That's a good idea. Make sure he does not laugh.

I built an HTPC for my Wife and used Velcro for the SSD. They are so light, they won't go anywhere. Then just plug in 2 cables. It's the easiest thing you can do and the most noticable performance upgrade you can do to a computer.

I can understand the mate. Just remember all parts and connectors have one way to go on and off. Some of those power connectors have a latch you need to press and hold to pull them off, the main20/24 pin, PCIe connectors (on the GPU) and the 4/6/8 12V power plug for the CPU. RAM slots have a latch to press down on either one or both ends. SATAIII cable have a metal latch as well.

Ill just remember to tell that to my friend. Note: I am not going to get the computer right away so we should not go too far with DIY.

Gary, you make it sound really complicated. Could you describe the opening process of a Coke can in the same terms.

Re going to (South?) Korea just check the PC has a 110v/115v or 220v/230v switch. Korea is 220v. You'll also need to buy a new power cable to suit the power wall socket. WHS moves between the US and Europe so he'll know about this stuff.
Last time I bought an OEM PC it did have stickers on it to verify you hadn't opened the box during the warrantee period. It wouldn't hurt to check.
