Here is where you will find all the information on a clean install either Win 8 or Win 7, UEFI GPT or BIOS MBR, http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?28758-GUIDE-G55-G75-Upgrade-Notes&country=&status=
If you want to clone your present HD to your new SSD I would suggest http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.aspx, Many here have had good luck cloning with Macrium Reflect.

I dont necessarilly want to do a clean install it is only a 250 GB I don't think this is enough storage. I am try to see if I can have both of them in at the same time or do I need two completely different OS with two different hard drives example: HDD: Windows7
SSD: Windows8 or 7 again? Or can I wipe my HDD and combine both drives and reinstall same OS on both so they work together.

The best thing to do would be to install Win8/7 on the SSD and use the secondary drive as a storage drive.

You only need the OS installed on ONE of the hard drives.

Also.... CONGRATZ on graduating!

Thanks man ok well probably do. I well have to wipe my main hard drive than clean install windows7 on my ssd right? How can I clean my hdd and use it as storage do I go to Command prompt after installed windows7 on ssd and wipe it from my command prompt using diskpart and format it as ntfs and create partition primary as in my video I made here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDmXVVh6yOE also it would be diskpart select the correct disk and then type clean and wala I have a wiped hdd that i can use as storage correct? Then I just put all of my games on my ssd can I save games on to the wiped hdd and run an applicatio such as BF3 from a hard drive with no os and run that app on the ssd with the os? Also, doesnt windows7 take up a lot od space out of the 250 GB's?
