Hi everyone, shortly I am switching from an Intel to AMD CPU and motherboard and I have read that I must do a fresh install of windows because of drivers and hardware changes. Since I already have all my games from steam, battlenet etc installed on a HDD, am I able to remove the HDD during a fresh install of windows and re-install the applications used on an SSD to run the games? I don't really want to reinstall 500GB worth of games again, is it possible to reinstall windows and applications but choose the download path that can identify that the game is already installed? Help would be greatly appreciated
