Various config files might load the incorrect things. For example I
remember there being a special work around for xfree or dri on an intel
chipset, the i810 I think. If you change no software when you swap out
the mb the command startx might not work if you had to do this work
around. Also check the /boot/loader.conf file for modules, if you did
not compile anything into the kernel. If you rebuilt the system from
source with any cpu or system specifc options you will need to rebuild
from source again. Depending on the cpu options you system might run
fine or not boot at all.
