My motherboard died.. Processor is still good, but seeing as how I need a new one I need to be sure that if I hook up the new board will it boot into my desktop as if nothing happened? Or will I need to reinstall my windows... Thanks. Also I'm looking into switching sides to intel.

changing HDD from system A to system B does not always tend to boot if you just plug it in. The OS was installed when you had it connected to old motherboard and CPU, so chances are you can't just boot like nothing ever happened, you will have to do a clean install of windows for it to work.

After that, your good to go :) 

212 EVO will work on a H81 chipset, as it is LGA 1150 socket supported.
