Installing new hard disk

I'm upgrading my hard disk in my MBP (core 2 duo). I've seen references to do it two ways. Which is best?

1)
- Install new drive in a usb enclosure
- Use SD to clone it.
- Replace existing drive with new drive

OR
2)
- Install new drive
- Put old drive in usb enclosure
- Install OS from CD/DVD
- Use migration assitance

I do NOT have a firewire drive, so I was concerned option 2 will not work?

I'd use option 1. Make sure you partition it using the "GUID" partition scheme!
