I was considering the option of upgrading my motherboard and cpu to a new socket (I have a LGA 775 currently). Would to do a fresh install of Lion? Or would there be a way to keep my current install while just editing a few things?

When I copied my 10.6 install from my Core 2 Duo to my Core i7 Laptop I just removed cloned the drive and removed the unnecessary (for the i7 machine) kexts and added the appropriate ones for it. OS X is very good about being flexible with the installed hardware.

Note that if you have any software installed that uses your Hardware UUID (see System Profiler, Hardware) for registration purposes, serial number generation etc, it will no longer work.
