    If you have your contacts, diary etc backed up to google and your music and photos etc on sd card them very very little. I did one a while back and all I had to do was reload my apps from market and sign back into my accounts. My wallpaper was remembered but I had to set up all my shortcuts again.

    Download SMS Backup and Restore and that will save all your texts too to Google account if you need them.

    Your apps should still be listed under 'my apps' in Market so you just reinstall.

    I get about
    No, Factory reset doesn't touch SD card

    They should be saved to your SD card

    Yes, SMS backup and restore saves them to a folder on your SD card

    If you first disable the google backup it wont restore them, otherwise it may attempt to restore them when you next sign in to the market

    Also worth enabling USB debugging mode, if you haven't already and install "My Phone Explorer" on the PC. This is a great free tool to back up all contacts/texts/apps and memory card content.
