Motherboard swap

My old Asus P5KC is dying. Going to replace it with a used P5QL-e motherboard where there be any problems with Windows 7 install ? (reinstall ?) CPU and other hardware is the same!
Do I need to remove any chipset drivers before swap ?

Is this procedure necessary ?
It's too difficult

Won't it just work if I remove old chipset drivers and swap the MB and install new ones ?
