I do:

rename c:\ruby to c:\ruby-182
install 1.8.5 into c:\ruby

then go to C:\ruby-182\lib\ruby\gems\1.8\cache and do
gem install *.gem

I suppose there will be problems with dependencies (order of
installation), so if anything fails, I install the gems individually.

Then I'd do global update and remove older no more needed gems.
