Switching motherboards, have questions!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am switching from the board in my sig, to my friends not so old GA-890FXA-UD5 rev 2.0. Its a lot better than mine because it supports ddr3 as well as pcie2.0.

I was really wondering if I had to reinstall windows to make this transition smooth, or If I could just uninstall my mobo's chipset and sound drivers to relieve this of any error to happen.

What do you guys think?

Just uninstall all of the old mother boards drivers and slap in the new one and drivers. I have done this and no reinstall was required.
