So I wanted to upgrade my system because it is currently 6 years old but the problem is that I want to keep my graphics card and my hard drives but there is very little online about how to do so. Is there anything that I need to do to set them up or is it just plug in. Do i need to wipe my drive? Thanks

Yes, you'll want to wipe your boot drive/partition and perform a clean install. Any data drives, data partitions, backups and so forth don't need to be wiped. Just the boot drive/partition.

No, there is nothing special about using your old parts. It's just like using new parts. As long as they are compatible. You just install them and any necessary drivers.

For your Windows C drive, absolutely plan on a fresh install.

Per the link above....a fresh install on the desired drive, in the new system.

Read through that. It outlines the whole procedure, including booting up from the Win 10 USB you'll create, and deleting all existing partitions.
Then proceeding on with the install.
