is your plan to buy the motherboard by itself or the entire laptop?
either way, as long as you keep your harddrive, the new motherboard should recognize it and boot up with everything loaded from before.
Windows can be very unhappy with motherboard swaps, and will sometimes refuse to boot all together, so I wouldn't exactly guarantee that everything loads like it did before a swap. Additionally I would question whether the swap is really worth it versus just buying a new laptop. Laptop components and cables are fairly fragile, so if you're not experienced in working with such components, you're effectively risking breaking something for what really is a rather small FPS gain.
