Well, if you are upgrading the entire motherboard, as long as your RAM chips fit your new sockets, everything should go relatively smoothly.  I've encountered a few problems actually upgrading only the processors, but if you're swapping the entire motherboard, you shouldn't have any trouble.  Just be careful of the static electricity, make sure to ground yourself by either wearing a static wrist strap or touching the metal portion of your case and leaving part of your arm always touching it.
