not really. just ground yourself before (at the heating for example)

it really depends on what your new motherboard will be. the more it differes from our old, the higher are your chances that you have to reinstall your operating system.

You're files should always be backed up whether you're replacing a mobo or not. You probably don't need to reinstall but I would recommend it just to keep the drivers clean.
