Hello everyone,

A few days ago my CPU fan stopped spinning so I went online and ordered a new cooler and saw the guy selling it has a 1TB HDD so I bought it too.
Today it arrived and I couldn't get the cooler to fit properly. I sighed and decided it was time for an upgrade anyway. So again I went online and searched a bit and found a guy selling a motherboard combo (MOBO, CPU, and RAM).
Anyways I have it here with me now and I want to know if it will impact my OS in any way. The component difference is big so that's why I'm asking you all.

My current specs:
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-EP35C-DS3R
CPU: Core 2 Duo E8500
RAM: 2x2GB 800Mhz & 2x1GB 800Mhz
HDD: Hitachi Deskstar P7K500
GPU: Asus GTX 660 DirectCU II
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate

What I want to put in:
MOBO: Asus H81M-R
CPU: i5-4460
RAM: 2x4GB 1333Mhz

Sorry if I wrote in the wrong thread!
Thanks for all the replies in advance!

Well then...you have only THAT one installed when you install the OS.
However, a WD Green is a poor choice for the OS drive.

And by "transfer everything"...what do you mean by "everything" ?
I don't have anything better at this time so the WD Green will have to do.
Everything as in pictures and documents. Everything else can be reinstalled so I won't bother to move.
