Same Chipset - Different Motherboard
I currently have the EVGA 680i motherboard which contains the NVIDIA chipset. I want to upgrade my motherboard to most likely the 750i. I know that it's ALWAYS recommended to format and reinstall Windows (more specifically Vista in my case) unless it's just a replacement, but I don't see a need for it. If there is an actual reason, what are some examples/specific problems that can occur if I don't do this? Can't some of the Windows Recovery Disc features be used to do this; something like Windows Upgrade and/or Repair OR somehow in an indirect way with Windows Easy Transfer?

-Thanks in advance.
