i always recommend a reinstall with a new motherboard, although it is not absolutely necessary. you will most likely have to re-activate windows thou, as the license is tied to the old motherboard.

if the activation does not work, you will provided with a microsoft 800 number to call, and they will provide you a new number, as long as this is the only pc your windows is installed on.
