If you have a retail copy, you can install it on the new computer but will have to uninstall it from the other one. Retail OS can be installed to a different computer, but only 1 computer at a time. If you have an OEM version, you will have to buy a new copy. OEM versions are tied to the computer they are installed on and with rare exceptions cannot be installed and validated on another computer.

Ok well the ram part of it was to fill in the empty slots

The OS i have no problem buying it but at the same time im pretty sure were going to keep the one we are on right now and shift it upstairs

I probally will have to buy a new windows just on the strength cause i want to use HDMI etc on the other Tv and win 7 is the best for the HDMi connections and multi adapter type devices

for the SSD thought i might get a 80 or 100 gb i mean really i just looked at my disc usage on win7 and it is nothing cause everything else is shifted to my book

I hate to say it but i do want to save a little cash no sense in getting a big time SSD when im not going to use all the space

I don't know what you run on your computer, but usually a 60GB is enough, especially if yo move all user files to another hard drive. I have an 80GB Intel right now and am using about 20GB just for OS and programs. Everything else is on another drive. But, I would get a good quality one.

Install the OS and programs on the SSD, User files, videos, games and others can be on another disk. The os takes about 16GB, so look at that and your programs. Your games, videos,pictures and documents will no be on the SSD.

I would not be too hot about that Kingston SSD. You may be better served with an Intel or OCZ. At Newegg they very often have SSD sales - subscribe to their feed. I paid $145 for a 90GB Vertex2 at Christmas.

Capacity wise even a 60GB would be good enough for a desktop. The OS itself rarely exeeds 20GBs - even with a healthy amount of programs installed (no games though). You delete the hiberfile and move the user data to the HDD. My 90GB mentioned above was for a laptop where I also needed room for user data. But on this desktop I have had a 60GB OCZ for a long time and still have over 32GBs of free space despite a couple of vBox virtual machines running.
