Replace HDD with SSD with fresh install of Win7

This question is not answered

I am going to replace an existing 1TB HDD with a 128GB SSD on an Alienware Aurora Desktop PC. I have found an article mentioning something about installing a piece of software called "Desktop System Software (DSS)" first before any other software including Chipset drivers. However, in looking through Dell's available choices I don't see any version of the DSS that mentions my Alienware PC which brings me to my question...is it necessary?

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
