Bought new NVMe need some help with migrating

Hey guys Im buying my first NVME drive and want to have my OS and my commonly used games on it. The problem is I have  a 1 TB SSD a samsung 850 PRO and an old 120 SSD with stuff on all of them. Whats the best way to go about moving my windows onto the new drive and moving files off the old onto the new. Noob friendly.  Thanks!

Just use Samsung migrate. Really easy.

If you're interested in a product please download and read the manual first.

So what I should do is install the new drive, install windows on it, make it the bootable drive, move the files over from my 850 pro, than secure erase the 850 pro?
