Take the new CPU chip and just pop it into the motherboard. If youre gonna keep the memory, make sure its compatible to the new motherboard. How many watts is your PSU? I think a safe bet for anyone right now is to get a 450-500watt PSU... for the HDD, unplug the current wires that are in your hdd from your motherboard and plug them into the corresponding slot on the new motherboard.

You will have to get thermal paste separate... the CPU comes with a heatsinker, but its pretty crappy, so when you can, id advise you to get a ThermalRight SI-128 and attach a Delta Triple Blade to that.
