XP "My Documents" on switch to W7.

I have XP Pro with Media Centre Edition and sometimes watch TV in the corner of the screen. Also my primary drive is partitioned into c:\ for system, programme files etc, and F:\ for, essentially "My Documents" - all music, word processed stuff, photos etc. In a month or two I plan to switch to Windows 7,and would be happy to format the C: drive, but could I retain the F: drive with My Documents ? Also can I still use the MCE version of Win 7 - ie what version to buy?
