Here's a newbie question again from me, im using asus h87m -e mobo and asus GTX 650 and i will upgrade my mobo and gva to msi z87 g45 and GTX 7** or R9 2**. And i will use my 3 months old 500g HDD seagate.

my question is should i format first before putting it the new mobo & gpu ?



or

gonna put the new mobo , gpu, same time with the unformat hdd that has OS?


just wanna avoid any issues/error.

Sorry for my bad english.. smh..

Should work for you, sometimes I pre-format on the old system.
