New motherboard and my hdd

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok so I have been thinking about ugrading several of my pc components like my motherboard, CPU and RAM and was wondering if I need to re-format my hard drive. I'm not sure on the model of my current mobo, or the one I'll be upgrading to, but they'll more than likely be intel. Also getting an i5 760 and more RAM. I'm currently running both windows xp professional and windows 7 ultimate, both 32bit/x86 but I'll probably stick with 7 as ive had no problems with it.

Either way I'll probably re format as there's a ton of crap I've been meaning to delete, though I thought it would be best to check. Thanks in advance!

You wouldn't really NEED to, though it's recommended. Makes things less prone to driver-related problems and might net you a performance boost, as any OS gets "laggy" after long use.
