Default Best (free?) program to image a system drive to a bigger drive?

My 80GB Windows 7 drive isn't cutting it, and I don't want to do a reformat on a new drive.

I'm thinking of getting a WD 500GB Black to replace it. (Or are there any other recommendations for a fast system drive?)

What is the best, possibly free program to image my system drive to the new 500GB so there will be no problems once I plug it into my computer?

Each of the major HDD manufacturers has a fairly decent app for swapping in a new HDD.

WD's is based on Acronis.... WD Support
