Just copy my documents, my pictures and so on. Just anything you want to keep.

to reinstall office 2010:
The standard way of doing this is just uninstalling the copy of Office from the current computer andóbecause Microsoft only gets notified of new installs/activations, not uninstalls/deactivationsóthen using phone activation when you've hit the activation limit permitted by your license. If you explain the situation to them, they should give you a new key to activate Office on your new computer.

Okay so I should un-install MS office before I format my hdd, copy "My documts" to my new HDD and then just start installing... I guess the trial version of MS office and then try and activate my key, explain to them whats happened and all should be fine?

You can copy all files you need (documents, videos, pictures, music.... ) anytime you want.
