I'll be running Windows XP, non 64-bit edition.
Should I format the HD before upgrading?
yes. Any time you make a major hardware change (such as a new mobo) you must reformat.
It's not a new mobo, just a new processor. I never format when just switching to a faster processor. I'm just concidering doing it because I'm jumping to the 64-bit era
what mobo do you have, and what chip do you have now? Sempron?
Sempron is correct and the mobo is a BIOSTAR NF325-A7
you should be okay to not format.
unless you're upgrading to windows 64bit edition there is no reason to reformat unless you just want a fresh start
