Hey, as the title says im upgrading my motherboard but keeping my hard drive, is there anything I need to do before and after installation to keep my OS currently running Windows 7 HP 64bit, also upgrading my graphics card from a ASUS 7770HD to a MSI GTX770 if that helps. Thank you

If you have an OEM license then you will have to buy a new one and reformat your boot drive as the OEM license locks itself to the MOBO

If you have a SSD/HDD setup and you have your games on the HDD then you would be fine

If you back up all your data then yeah it will be fine. Just remember that if you have any installed programs you will have to reinstall them however
