Default Changing mobo, do I have to re-install Windows?

My nefew wants to up-grade his computer by changing the motherboard + CPU. He have an e-machine T6420, 2.2 GHz x64 3400+ and want to up-grade to Abit NF-M2S NVIDIA Socket AM2 MicroATX Motherboard and an AMD Athlon 64 X2 5400+ 2.80GHz Socket AM2 OEM Processor. Will he have to re-install Windows from scracth?

Thank you for your advise...
