My System Specs

Default Installing a SSD boot drive and keeping pre-existing drive as it was???

I have an older mother board Asus M4A78T-E so itís a SATA II 3 gig connection. I currently have a 640 gig WD Black drive it is loaded with games and whatnots ~ Probably close to half full 250 gig plus Win 7 64 bit installed so lets say 300 gig or so full. I want to add A SSD boot drive and have my eye on a OCZ Agility 2 OCZSSD2-2AGTE60G 2.5" 60GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD). It has decent ratings and is a SATA II.

If I buy this SSD and load win 7 is the following possible (or if there is a better way let me know or if I am missing something please indicate)

1. Disconnect the WD black drive.
2. Connect the SSD drive
3. Change boot sequence to DVD drive than SSD (Is there a trim setting that needs to be changed in the bios?)
4. Load windows
5. Install all drivers needed to run system board drivers sound drivers graphic drivers.
6. Get the system running like new on the ssd.
7. Then open the case and connect the old WD Black drive
8. Open the bios make sure the SSD is #1 in boot sequence.
9. Change target path as I use programs / Make new Shortcuts

Thanks in advance
