Recovery disc help, Please!

I need some common sense help here that I have been unable to get on my google search. 25 different answers, all of them different.
I have a Dell XPS laptop running Win 7 that has a hard drive on it's way out. It does not have a recovery partition installed.
My question, if I burn the recovery DVDs using the Win 7 function in the Backup/Restore area, can I replace the drive and use them to reinstall windows? Or, do I need the Win7 DVD that doesn't come with the compluters anymore?
What is the recovery discs used for?
