I'm planning to replace the motherboard and processor on my Linux box. I know that the two need to be compatible with each other and the RAM, but are there compatibility issues to worry about with other parts?

This is a difficult question to answer, but usually, as iDarine pointed out, everything from power supply to CPU, video card, memory, hard drives, etc. are impacted by your choice of motherboard. – user3463 Jul 2 '10 at 5:49
