Is it possible to swap the A7V8X-X for A7V600-X.

Basically just reattaching my devices to it??

What precautions should I take?

Do you mean regarding your Operating System? Is it Windows XP/2003/64Bit? If so, you can replace the mainboard and perform a "Repair" of your OS and keep the system.

Code:
XP Repair install

   1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the 
boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. 
Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and
change the boot order.
   2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the 
options below 

      This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
         Windows XP to run on your computer:

         To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

         To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, 
          press R.

         To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

   3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup.
       
      To setup Windows XP now and Repair Install , press ENTER. do 
not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery 
Console, press  R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console). I 
repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery 
Console, press  R". 
   4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing 
Windows installations.
   5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press 
R to start the repair.
Code:
   6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot.  Do 
not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will 
continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and 
settings will remain intact.
