I'll be doing this, most likely, when I upgrade my mobo, but I guess I don't have to from what I've read. Would any of you guys reformat when switching out the mobo or just use Windows Repair Installation?

Back in the XP days, about once a year.

Since I upgraded to 7, only once, and that was when I had this bizarre bug I could not work out how to fix. (The system stopped recognizing USB keyboards, claiming it couldn't find a driver.)
I have a blog! Warcraft and other gamer musings.
