Default Questions about upgrading

I plan on upgrading a computer, and I have a few questions:
1. If I upgrade the processor, RAM, and graphics card, will I have to reinstall the OS?
2. Would replacing the mobo cause problems as well?

yes, mostly everytime you put someting new in, except ram/graphics card. you would probably have to reinstall the OS, especially when you install a new mobo

Video card I recomend reinstalling the operating system.
Motherboard is a must for reinstalling.
CPU and RAM don't matter

Id only recommend reinstalling the OS if you are switching from ATI to nvidia or vise versa
