Upgrading Motherboard

Hows it going guys,

If i wanted to upgrade my motherboard on my PC, what steps are required to configure it properly? Would i have to reinstall windows and drivers? The reason i wanted to upgrade is because the motherboard i have does not support usb 3.0, doesn't have dual PCI slots, and is only 3gbs. I purchased a 120gb oz agiligy SDD and it sucks that i'm not using it to its capability. Would you guys recommend doing this at all and would it be risky or a lenghy process?

My current motherboard is asus m4a88t-m and i would like to upgrade to ASUS M5A97. My process ( phenom 1035t) is compatible with the new board and Ram is as well.Any help would be appreciated and thank you for your time.

  1. You will need to reinstall Windows and all the drivers, yes.

    It shouldn't require any more effort to set it up than it did to setup the M4A88T-M board.
