    I guess my user folder will be kept, thus the appdata folder will remain and my program settings will be intact.

    But mostly I wonder what changes that I have made to the system settings (Windows 8.1 Pro x64) will be kept. Things like:

    - startup items ( both startup folder located & registry based)
    - custom pagefile size
    - filetype associations
    - custom power plans
    - enabled/disabled hibernation
    - driver setting (Nvidia)
    - registry tweaks
