You would probably have to configure them in the BIOS, but probably not in Windows.

the only thing i am worried about is the fact that when i first got the computer it was just an HP system so i have no manuals for all the components or drivers, or anything like that so what all would i have to do to really get things running like usual after installing the new board.

Windows should just recognize the new obo and processor, but you might want to remove the old ones first.

so even if i switch from my current setup to an athlon xp and athlon board then it would be just the same as switching for a new pentium board? and it will just pretty much recognize the new board and processor and i thats about it?
