Default new mobo

hey guys i just ordered a new mobo.

recently, during some troubleshooting, i wiped my c drive and reinstalled vista 64.

when i install my new mobo, should i wipe my drive again and reinstall windows with the new mobo?

i've never done just a mobo swap, thanks in advance.

Yes, when you change something major like your motherboard, you'll have to do a fresh install.


Random movie quote to make you seem hip and "with it":
"Please take the chairs away. I don't like them. The big one is staring at me and that short one is being very droll."
