Default changing mb and reinstalling xp

I am upgrading my "quirky" ecsk7s5a mb and gforce 2 mx 400 with a gigabyte ga-7n400el mb and a gigabyte 9600pro vid card, I know I am going to have to do a fresh install of windows but will I have to call them or will I still be able to activate over the internet. I installed windows on this machine almost a year ago and have not done a hardware change in 6 months or so. Is this going to be a big deal with microsoft or are they reasonable to deal with. I am using the same processor and ram and hard drives will be the same. Thanks for any advice

main rig..amd 2500mobile oc@2200,ga7n400-e-l, thermaltake silent boost, audigy2zs,creative 7.1,1024 ocz performace ram, gigabyte 9600pro,2 40 and 160gig hd, ultra x-connect 500watt ps.

There will be no problem. Windows XP usually lets you reload at least twice on a single number. If you have any problems with it give them a call, explain the situation and they should give you a new number. You shouldn't have to though.
