I'm thinking of upgrading my computer.

From a Dell GX520
to a HP Pavilion p6710f Desktop (seen here.
Short version: P4 2.8ghz, 1g ram, 80gb hd, cd-rom reader vs. Quad core 3ghz, 4g ram, 1tb hd, dvd writer.
It looks like a good step up, and who doesn't like shiny new toys, but I had a few questions. This is a close out, maybe I should wait for the next big sale? But $400 doesn't seem that bad. Upgrade to W7 pro for $90?
What do I need to do to move over the programs I have to the new machine? Naturally, I don't have all of the old install discs.
