By mainboard, I am sure you mean "motherboard", so if you mean that, if your motherboard has all of the appropriate things on it such as PCI/AGP slots, and the right processor slot and stuff, you should be able to move everything over to it with no problems.

(and if you move the HD to the new PC, if you have everything saved on it and stuff, if the transition goes correctly, everything should still be in position)
