You can swap it into a new computer and occasionally Windows will boot from it . . . more often than not though, you're going to have issues from the different hardware on your new computer. You can always read the data off your old HDD by plugging it into a new computer, and booting up off of the new HDD to recover files though.

Good stuff Mark!! Been there and a new PS didn't do it for me.

On a separate but related note, I bought a bunch of components from Newegg and dropped them off today at a local PC store who will assemble my new super computer. It will have an Intel i5-3570K chip, 16GB RAM and a Samsung 256GB SSD as the boot drive (OS and all the programs). The data drive is a 750GB. I am really looking forward to speed and something robust enough to not choke on a few programs being open. Should have it Fri/Sat.

Also, it should REALLY help out with photo processing in Lightroom 4.
