SCCM 2007 SP1 Client Migration

Hi Team,
I have an existing SCCM 2007 SP1 Primary Site with an attached secondary site all on Windows 2003. I have built a new Central (Primary) Site on WIndows 2008 and new SQL Server and intend to build another new primary site and attached seconday site. (I wish to decommission the exisiting SCCM setup)
My question is this: having these running side by side, how do I migrate the clients, so the Configuration Manager clients on the XP desktops point to the new Primary or secondary site? I wasn't sure creating new boundaries was the correct procedure as the configmgr clients would get confused. It wouldn't matter if the clients weren't monitored either during this migration. - Would it simply be a case of deleting the old sites, removing the exisiting clients and re-installing from the new setup?
Thanks

Thanks U_MAnsoon and JonLambert for your helpful replies
I have a couple of further questions:
In order to re-install the client, can I use the Client Push method? - However I see this involves running a AD Netowrk discovery and the creation of boundaries.
So could I
1. remove the boundaries on the old SCCM server
2. Create boundaries on new SCCM server
3. run AD discovery to populate my SCCM database
4. Perform client push installation over the existing installtions on the pc's

Instead of using GPO's it seems one should be able to do everything from within SCCM 2007 R2?
I look forward to your thoughts
Thanks

What about if I pushed clients out from the old SCCM server but configured them to point to the new Site?
