If you're using Windows, it would be a good idea. You MIGHT be able to get away with going from an AMD-AMD.

With linux, don't have to. :-)

you dont NEED to..

but itll take you a good 30 minutes to get all the drivers together.. then format later on..


also, another thing, the comp just might not boot up to windows because of the hardware chance..


its like a 70/30 chance of it working..
