You will need to reinstall Windows... Mr. Gates hates it when you don't buy a new copy of his OS whenever you change hardware.
Also, plan on reactivating Windows again.
Yes, MS are nazis.

If you're upgrading MB, it might not be a bad idea to think about upgrading your PSU, just something to think about, but not necessary.

Try swapping out mobo's with linux, also not likely to work.
