PSU will also give you no problem, just make sure it's compatible with your mobo and has enough molex/sata connectors

The only hardware changes that require a reinstall are a replacement HDD (duh) or a different motherboard.

It will be fine but may I ask why? It would be a considerate step down although I cannot think of anything that would prevent you from just popping it in. Sometimes when you go from dual to quad you need to do a repair installation but I don't think that applies from quad to dual

You won't have to reinstall Windows, but you probably will be putting the Q6600 back in within 24 hours.!
