I'm getting a new motherboard/cpu and I'm assuming I'll have to upgrade windows xp to windows 7 on my HDD. My question is what should the ordered process be for doing this? Should I install my motherboard (and everything else) first, then boot the CD from the bios settings and install windows 7? Or do I have to format my HDD and do a fresh windows 7 install.

That means I have to buy the full version instead of the upgrade version right? If so, is there an alternative?

You have to do a clean install when going from Windows XP to Windows7. Although Microsoft doesn’t want you to do so you can use the upgrade media to install Windows 7 by following the link in the previous post.
