Best Approach:  Upgrade to 10.2.2 from 10.0

I'm planning to upgrade our GIS to 10.2.2 from 10.0.  We use a personal SDE geodatabase on SQL Server Express 2008.  We've recently purchased a new server to house our geodatabase(s).  Could I use the following workflow and avoid "Upgrade Geodatabase": 


1.  Upgrade Desktop Advanced to 10.2.2

2.  Use it to create a new database on the new server

3.  Import the existing 10.0 database into it.


This seems simpler to me but I'm new to this type of database management.  Thoughts?
