My ASUS P5QLD PRO has broken, and i have decided to replace it with an ASUS P5Q PRO TURBO, as it has socket 775 (For my Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600) and gives me sli/crossfire capabilities should i need it.
My only question is the installation of my new motherboard. Do i need to remove drivers for the P5QLD PRO before installing the P5Q PRO TURBO, or are these over-written when installing a new motherboard? Are there any special procedures that need to be completed when changing motherboards?
Thanks in advance

Though if you do end up having any problems, the first thing I would suggest is to format and re-install Windows and everything else. Some drivers just don't like to be messed with that way.
I even did a re-install when I switched from a B2 version P67 board to the B3 version of the very same board. I guess I choose to prevent any problems in the first place, instead of waiting to do it until after a problem is discovered.
