Ok, When I get my PC I ordered from Digital storm it will have a 240 M.2 that will basically boot up drive. I plan on placing all my gaming on my 1T SSD I already have that I will be transferring from my old PC to the New PC. What would I need to do? DO I need to delete everything already on my SSD and just start from scratch?I mean the saves and stuff will not just be able to be used or anything, right?

Your old SSD should be recognized in Windows, and should perform exactly as it did before. (As long as you were using a Windows OS!) If Win doesn't recognize the drive, just Google "Win 10 not recognizing old drive" and follow instructions. It's a pretty easy fix, but long-ish to go into here. You might not need it. I migrated an HDD over from Win 7 and Win 10 saw it right away.

If the SSD you are migrating just has games and data, WIN 10 will read it just fine without any changes needed. They both use the same (NTFS) file system.

The only thing left to say is if the SSD has WIN 7 on it, WIN 7 won't work in your new machine. That's just because Microsoft has your WIN 7 registered to your other computer's specs and it will look like you're trying to use the same license on two different machines.
