Usually the recovery discs contain everything you need, but it's possible they might need something from the recovery partition, so check with Dell. I'd definitely burn the discs, but I'd also get myself an external hard drive and good backup program and do a full system backup. You can buy 1 TB external HDs for around $70 and there's an excellent free backup program Easeus Todo Backup Free, which you can download from http://www.todo-backup.com/products/home/free-backup-software.htm .

Good luck.
