    To avoid the most problems, you're best off to reformat and reinstall Windows. You can go into Device Mangler and delete all the devices before shutting down and pulling out the old board, but Windows tends to not like having hard drive controllers swapped out from under it without recognizing it first.

    Yeah, I'm going to have to, it'll just be easier that way. When I get the mobo I will be taking the cpu and mobo of my computer and putting it in the pc the rest of the family uses, upgrading it. The problem will be saving the files on the computer to cds, as it doesn't have a burner. It's the computer the rest of my family uses. I have a burner I could just swap, so no biggie, but they're big fans of AOL and I don't think my mom would like it too much if she lost all her stupid emails and stuff. So I have to try and contact aol about that. New Mobo install on mine won't be a prob though.

    that's useless as they are networked but it would take to long to transfer all the files.

    It wouldn't take that long. save any really big files to CDs (you'll want them there anyway), but save pictures, documents, and such to other computer's hard drives.

    Don't know about your network, but I can burn directly to a cd from a mapped network drive.
