Fresh install of windows on new computer?

I'm building a new computer, ill make this question quick.

Should I install a fresh copy of windows on my SSD that I'm reusing from my old computer, or just let it be? Should I wipe the drive completely and redownload everything? I know it doesn't really make a difference, but since I'm using the same SSD I'm guessing I shouldn't worry about it?

My personal preference is to do a clean install remove all the crap that most of accumulate on our systems. That will also eliminate and corruption or malware if there is any lingering on the system.
