I just my MSI NEO K8N NEO today I was wondering if I have to format my harddrive before installing the motherboard?

First off congrats :cool:

Second, its recommended you install your new mb/cpu, boot off the OS cd, then reformat & install yer apps. You're much less likely to run into problems installing new hw on a fresh OS then on an older one with a mucked up registry (winxp). Only thing I'd do prior to installing yer board is back up data.
