Typically, you can change the hardware and just boot up - kudzu will detect the newer hardware and update your system. However, if you've made modifications to drivers (like installing the NVidia drivers) or other changes to your X configuration, it may not work quite like you'd expect and you'll have to mess with it a bit.
This should have no affect on user-specific settings, such as desktop preference, themes, etc.
