When ever I have got a new mobo, I have always formatted and reinstalled, otherwise you end up getting driver conflicts.
or the OS wont start at all

I like to format every 6months or so, keeps everthing running sweet

Luckily I have 2 hdds, so I keep all my stuff on one, and have the OS on the other one.

I don't. I hardly ever format and I've never had to when getting a new MB either. The OS should be able to adapt, I don't see why there would be driver conflicts.
Doesnt always tho piggy, sometimes the OS doesnt like it one bit. I dont know about driver conflicts, but you would have a load of drivers installed that you didnt need. Format makes it nice and fresh

You have all the old mobo drivers, as well as all the new mobo drivers, so they will conflict, especially with things like PCI and AGP.

But you need to get a cmpletely new mobo as well, not to mention some decent RAM and a graphics card to make the most of it, so it can work out expensive.

it costs money but it would be worth it and plus you wouldnt be needing to upgrade it for a few good years.

Maybe, but on a student's budget, it is a bit expensive. You should stick to the higher athlons for the moment, as they are quite cheap.
