    A question before my Win8 install.

    I'm currently using a 120Gb SSD for my current Win7 install and have most of my utility programs installed to a conventional secondary HD.

    I'm assuming that those programs on the HD (as well as the 770gb of steam installs....sigh) will be toast after the Win8 install, and that I should probably just delete the programs/x86 folders and re-install the applications from scratch after the new OS installation?
    Sorry, never encountered this situation before having an SSD....

    Edit: Also, the disc I have is win8 pro 64. I intend to upgrade that to 8.1 . Are there any things I should be aware of as far as avoiding any problems during this process?

    yes, you're right, the programs all need to be reinstalled so they will have the correct registry entries

    If you do a direct upgrade, you won't have to reinstall anything. I would try that first - and if all is well, leave it. If not, then you can do the clean install and reinstall, etc., etc.
