Im upgrading from my broken Asus M5A78L-M LX3 to Asus M5A78L LE. I read that if they are similiar, windows will load without having to reinstall windows. Do I have to do the reinstall?

Being OEM, it will almst certainly deactivate itself. Being a broken motherboard replacement, you can 'probably' activate it over the phone, either via the phone robot or a human.

Will it run the first time? Probably. No guarantees, though.
