Pretty much just the BIOS is installed on the mobo. I am not sure what you mean by wipe the mobo but you can reset the the BIOS to factory or optimized default settings.

yes a fresh instal is always good to clear out any of the garbage from previous install's so everything is nice a fresh.

Note: if your OS is OEM then you cant reuse it on a different system. Retail versions you can.

Yeah you should be good as long as you're using the same parts. Just make sure you back up your data (documents/save files/etc) before you do a reformat.

I also don't understand what you mean by "wipe mobo" unless you mean to wipe the HDD.

Edit: Also, this shouldn't be in the Graphics Cards section.
