Question Quick Question

I'm upgrading my Skt 939 Athlon 3800+ to a Skt 939 Athlon 3800+ X2, i can install it without having to flash my bios as ive done my research

the thing is will i have to reinstall windows as a result of upgrading my CPU?

edit: dont worry i used google for a change

answer: no you do not need to reinstall windows however if you are running vista then you eill need to re-activate your copy
