  1. i think there's this thing of calling MS or something.... cuz the OS detects that it's a different computer
  2. You will have to reinstall Windows if you change motherboards yes.
  3. Maybe not. You are sticking with same brand. I can move boot drives between my 4 Gigabyte motherboards (P45-UD3P and UD3L, P35-DS3P, and G41M-ES2L) without much trouble.

    Huh, I would have thought the different chipsets would give you trouble.
