    What screwdrivers do I need to change the HDD to SSD and upgrade the RAM.

    Once I install the SSD, how do I go about re-installing all of the software and correctly partitioning/formating the SSD? Is there any specific configuration/set-up I need to do when I go to the SSD.

    Small phillips screwdriver (I think 00 size) and a T-6 torx screwdriver

    Great - once I install the new SSD and HDD into my system, how do I properly configure them?

    The CD Drive will be in an enclosure - I'm guessing I connect that via USB and insert the recovery disks in it and install the OS on the SSD?

    How do I configure it to have the OS + Applications on the SSD and the data (pictures, videos) on the HDD? Is that what people usually do as well?
