It depends what you want to do. Do you want a fresh Windows 10 install on the new ssd, or do you want to transfer the Windows 10 install from your old hdd to the new ssd (a fresh install is better)? In order to boot your new 970 evo, you are going to have to partition it in a special way called GPT. You are also going to have to go into the BIOS and and change the boot order. This is very simple and there are numerous videos out there showing how to do it. I would go to the Samsung website and down load their program, Samsung Magician https://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/minisite/ssd/download/tools/ which will help you get things set up. Samsung also makes software available if you want to migrate you windows install to the new ssd. here is a you tube video that may help.
