Default IDE --> SATA

In about a week my new build will be done, and i'll have an SATA setup rather than my current IDE. Is there an easy way to just flash this new SATA with all my stuff, or a program or something that will work? I also have a DVD-R drive, so if thats the efficient way, i'll do that. Advice??!

There are a few ways, the best will probably be to do a clean install of the OS to ya new pc, then assuming ya running XP you can use the file and settings transfer wizard. Also if ya have music etc on the IDE drive then just connect it as a slave to the new pc and copy over to the SATA drive once ya new OS is installed.
