    if you're coming from a stock ROM, you should technically wipe everything.

    Factory reset, wipe both caches and wipe the system partition. If you're worried about losing apps and the data associated with them, there's an app called Titanium which can back stuff up so you can install again after a ROM flash. There's a little info on how to backup in clockwork here.

    Also and remember to take a backup in clockwork before you wipe/flash anything.
