Hello, friends

1 I have a bad IDE port on my Asus M3A78-T. RMA is sending same but new broad. MY question is do i have to load OS again, or can i just swap it out?

2 I can't change my resolution higher than 1280*1024, do to my moniter. My card will go much higher. How can i get my resolution higher to get max performance?

yea you can switch out motherboards like that, i had 2 of the same motherboards once, had one laying around and the one i was using went bad so i just used the one that was laying around and didnt have to reinstall the os or anything

for your other question you would have to get a monitor that supports a higher resolution
