I would like to know if it is possible when I upgrade my new motherboard (first time) to not have to wipe the hard drive because of windows. I've heard a few things that I have yet to be confirmed possible:
-Creating a new partition and placing your files inside of their?
-Installing the new motherboards drivers before installing the new mobo itself?
your gonna have to re install, just backup the files you want to keep, and the 880G chipset, why not go for the 970 or 990FX instead
I have a micro-ATX and the highest chip set they have is an 880 at the moment. I would love to use standard ATX and get the features and my computer "should" take it but the model was made with m-ATX even though the case is a full tower. I am using an LX-6200, but it is all upgraded.
For now I will settle with a budget mobo that will be sufficient until I just buy a new case that takes ATX (I could use a new one anyways)
