Clean windows install or remove drivers?

So i'm replacing my motherboard, Ram, and CPU in my PC. After I put in everything I know that I will have to uninstall my drivers. However which method is better? Most people said to delete my install of Windows 10 by inserting the DvD again and then go to troubleshoot and partition my SSD. I've also seen that you can just delete all your drivers such as USB and Video Card and MB, etc. Then just replace the motherboard and CPU and the drivers will download by themselves, and then update those drivers. Will this work because this looks much easier than the other route. I learned it from this you tube video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZn_hSlT0zk

Current:
MB: F2A88XM-D3HP (P0)
CPU: A10-7860k

Upgrading to:
MB:GIGABYTE GA-B250M-DS3H
CPU: Pentium 4600

Thank you!
