At the time you reinstall your OS (whichever), it might be worth fitting the new 320GB into the computer as your main C drive. That will give you greater capacity for your programs and data files, with fastest access.

You could then use the old 160Gb as a backup drive. You could either install it as a slave inside the computer, or buy a caddy and use it as an external USB drive.

I would install as slave drive transfer anything that you want to keep to it then format the C drive and install Win 7 (a vast improvement over Vista)
