Motherboard swap
#1
I just ordered a Motherboard for my current system I plan on swapping everything over (CPU, GPU, Memory, SSD).  
I've heard Joe say that you can use a drive that has Linux installed on it and put in another machine with no issues. You just need to uninstall the proprietary drivers for the video card first.  

I'm guessing that since I'm going to using the same Video Card I don't need to uninstall the proprietary drivers for it? I'm just asking for confirm if I'm correct or not.
Processor : 6x AMD Phenom™ II X6 1055T Processor
Memory : 8174MB
Operating System : Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia
Desktop Environment : Cinnamon 3.6.7 
Vendor : NVIDIA Corporation

Direct Rendering : Yes
ATA Samsung SSD 840

That is correct but I would uninstall the video drivers anyhow and reinstall after the change just to be sure there are no hangups (there should not be any).
