I have an Intel 660p Series M.2 with my OS and games and other stuff; that I want to move to my new build. I want to know if there will be any complications. Or if its not going to be as easy as take m.2 from old PC and install in new PC.

If you move the drive to a new platform, you're going to have to reinstall the OS and pretty much everything there was on said drive(since it'll be formatted.

I'd highly suggest that you backup any and/or all critical content from your drive to a removable storage device.

The HDD should not be connected until AFTER the OS is installed on the SSD in the new system.
Store what you like on it, connect later.
