Sometimes you can simply swap mobos. Sometimes it just never quite works 
right unless you reinstall the OS clean. Sure is a good opportunity to 
clean out the system, so you may as well.

You shouldn't _have_ to change anything in the BIOS as the factory default 
settings will probably work, but I'd take a few minutes to go through each 
page. Especially if you're going to reinstall your OS.

You didn't ask about hardware so I'm not going to speculate on things like 
different types of RAM, etc.
