Ubuntu 13.10

Hi..... I am thinking of installing Ubuntu 13.10 but have a few questions i need answering first please. Only used Windoze to date apart from a few occasions of using an Apple OS at college on a software course in Quark/Adobe Illustrator/InDesign. As such i would install and try on USB stick first, perhaps then later installing alongside Windoze 7 Ultimate 64gb.

7 Ultimate is on my c drive SSD Samsung 830 approx 500gb - 166gb free. If i was to install Ubuntu 13.10 to this would i cause any issues by doing so? I do not wish to do a clean install of 7 Ultimate first. I may wish to purchase Windoze 8.1 later, could i also install that to this drive having all three os on there?

My CPU is cooled by a Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme - it has windoze software for it (im guessing that wont work in Ubuntu) but will it still cool my CPU correctly? Preferably some monitoring for it too would be nice.

My hardware is listed at the bottom i hope it will all work and have drivers installed by Ubuntu itself as i doubt any of the discs contain drivers for the OS. Advice here too please.

Obviously i have software installed on my rig that i use daily currently, is it likely Ubuntu will see and display these for use? or is this a case of i will have no software in effect. I am guessing that my other drives which contain music files and images will allow access also?

Sorry for being a total noob at this, but, we all have to start somewhere in this i guess. Please don't guess at amswers but instead give imformative advice as you see things, help appreciated but i really need to be sure it's right to benefit the most. In anticipation, thanks
