Migration Assistant VS swapping HD
 
I have a really, really old G5 1.8GHZ PPC one processor, and a really old (one less really!) G5 2.3GHZ PPC w/ two processors. I want to get rid of the 1.8GHZ box and move the data over to the 'faster' computer.

I would like to hear people's thoughts on a clean OS install on the 2.3GHZ machine and then running Migration Assistant VS. just taking the hard drive out of the 1.8GHZ and putting it in the 2.3 GHZ.

I would like to keep ALL settings etc as well as the data in the migration.

Pros and cons of either method?

Thank you
