Default Transferring entire Windows from on HD to another

I just bought a new 120GB WD HD to replace a WD 40GB drive that is starting to make noise which is a sign of it going bad. I want to tranfer everything from the 40 to the new 120 so that way I won't have to reinstall everything fresh on the new drive. How would I do this? Would I use the CD that comes with the HD to transfer everything and how would performance be if this is done? Would the performance be the same or would it drop?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

You know that one guys how makes fun of CF all the time, well he got an attitude with me while i was helping him and he kept saying no one here knows anything, so i told him off and i guess they said PInky said something over the lines " shut up you shit head if you dont like it leave" he was simply defending the forum..
