do a Windows Easy Transfer (old machine) to backup all your data to external storage, clean install your genuine version of win7 then Easy Transfer your data back (new machine). let us know how that goes.

Will this preserve all my settings etc from my sound card and drivers? Will I have to reinstall all my software? Thanks in advance!

I don't think easy transfer will do ur drivers and software but get "Driver Genius" or something similar to backup your drivers for a start
