HELP: Switching Motherboard and Processor
Hi. I'm in the process of upgrading my XFX MACH 4 P4X4-ALH motherboard and P4 2.4 ghz processor, to an Asus P4P800 motherboard and P4 2.8 ghz w/ HT.
Now my question is, what's the process I should take?
I've asked a couple of my friends about it, and both told me different things. One of them told me that I would have to reformat my computer AFTER I switchout the motherboard because of different BIOS and driver settings. The other told me that I would need to reformat my drive BEFORE I switch it out.
Also, I have 2 hard drive ( 80 gb (partitioned in 2) / 120 gb (also partitioned in 2) - the 120 gb which I use as storage). Would I have to reformat both hard drives?
Please if you have any ideas, please post and help me out. My new parts should be coming in in a few days, so I have til then to figure out a plan =] Thanks guys.
