Last year I bought a Windows 7 Professional key online from eBay for my laptop that I had just repaired. This year I am building a gaming computer but I don't wanna spend $40-100 over my budget for a new Windows 7/8 license. Is there possible way that I can reuse my Win7 Pro key for my gaming PC?

But you can't use the same key on both systems. One or the other.

Still unknown. What type of license is it? OEM or retail?

Then yes, you can use that on another PC. As always, only one at a time.
It will almost certainly ask you to reactivate.
