Technically, yes - but it's far easier to reinstall.

You need to remove every chipset driver, reg entry etc that relates to your mobo. Chances of missing something and causing future issues are very high. Even I wouldn't bother and would go straight for a reinstall.

Plus you'll still have to re-activate your copy of Windows.

This will do it but reactivation is still necessary. The advantage is all of your installed software and your data will remain. Check Kari's post #583 for some extra tips.

Have you considered Crossfire or Sli if you are looking for frames chuck another card in there you will be with the elite without buying a whole new rig

Looking at your sys spec i would upgrade to a sabertooth 990 and 8350. Then a crossfired 280x, or even a CFVFZ/9590 and crossfired 290x's like my current build.

Whatever socket you go with, 1155 and Ivy Bridge, or 1150 and Haswell, don't discount the Asus Sabertooth because of the price. You never regret buying quality components.
