We just setup a new exch 2013 server which we will be migrating 2007 users to eventually, but my question is, should I create a new dbs for the users or just use the default one that got created during the install and just move its dbs path and logs to the san storage where we want the dbs?

I usually rename and then move the default database to the preferred location.
Exchange doesn't care, it is just a GUID to it.
