It depends upon how different the chipsets are. Sometimes XP will redetect and work with no problem, sometimes it will force you to reload. However, you probably will have to reactivate the machine.

Depends but if you're upgrading...

Depends, but if you're upgrading the hardware, can't hurt to slap on a clean copy of XP and start fresh.
