I have 1 SSD and HDD right now. SSD is where my OS is, and one of the HDD has the boot page file (I think that's what it's called), since I think SSDs can't store those files? Anyway, I was thinking of upgrading my rig and it involves getting a new mobo since my chipset is pretty outdated. If I were to remove my SSD and HDD, get a new mobo, GPU, CPU. Would I need to reinstall my OS? or will it be plug and play (of course after installing drivers for the new hardware, I'll just uninstall drivers for my current system from my hard disk).

Replacing your motherboard usually requires re-installing the OS since the license is linked to the motherboard. If you run into issues registering you key you can call MS to get a reset code. You can also build a computer with only SSD drives so it doesn't have anything to due with certain file types. However, when you change too much at once a reinstall is always recommended.
