I can't find specific documentation on this, but while Windows 7 IS more friendly with radical hardware change, I DO BELIEVE that you can expect major issues if you change processor architectures - that is, go from Intel to AMD or vise versa. IF you bought another Intel processor and mainboard - even a major updated Intel processor, I believe you should be ok (re-activation issues aside).
