If you are replacing the motherboard you have with one that is substantially the same (and supports your CPU and RAM), you may be able to transfer the hardware components, and just update the motherboard drivers.

But, if you are upgrading you board to a more modern board than the one you currently have, you will likely need a new CPU and RAM. You should be able to transfer the other hardware, but you will likely have to perform either a repair install or clean install of the operating system.
