Upgrading the DB then doing a backup of the content db and restoring it to the new server worked flawlessly.  This farm had really no customizations, mostly OOB.

we've had some success with this:

If not too complex, it could be as easy as using a DB attach.  We've tried this as well:

Can you just export and import with powershell?

Also, did you use the codeplex tool between 2007 and 2010?

The codeplex tool was definitely used to migrate from 2007 to 2010.  The migration using this was done on Saturday :)  We had been looking at some 3rd party solutions that cost $$$ and this free alternative did a fairly decent job,  We had a lot of customizations and it was able to capture a good portion of them.  So far we havent seen anything that 'does it all' when you have a lot of 3rd party parts, customizations, etc.  installed

there really are no customizations, i am just really moving a site with doc libraries.  i'm guessing this would do the trick pretty quickly?

took my team member about 1-2 hours for the actual migration from beginning to end.

If it is complicated then try Quest Sharepoint migration tools, They are great to work with, They cost you money however give a lot of added advantage to consolidate as needed in big environments

For smaller environments go with DB attach or inplace upgrade.. both are fine bets

if i detach and re-attach the db, will this affect this existing content database?  I dont want to replace it.

Confused, thought this was a migration to 2010 from 2007.  Normally attaching the DB will def affect the content.  You could try renaming and attaching and then pointing the site to the renamed DB.

BTW - THis is the link to the second part of that DB migration post:
