Which steps are needed to change motherboard on Windows 7 without reinstalling?
Switching motherboard without new install?

I currently have a:

Gigabyte GA-880GM-UD2H microATX (Socket AM3) DDR3
HD 5770 PCIE graphics card

And am getting a:

Gigabyte 990XA-UD3 AMD 990X (Socket AM3+) DDR3 Motherboard
2x6870 PCIE graphics cards to crossfire

I have Windows 7 ultimate on an SSD, will I simply be able to put it all together on the new motherboard without reinstalling Windows from fresh?

I have a lot of development software on my PC (such as IIS7.5 and SQL Server Express) which I really would rather NOT reinstall because it took so blooming long to tweak it to get it working in the first place!

No. as long as you plug the SSD from your old motherboard to your new one, you should be fine.
