I'm upgrading the comp I bought http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... started with PSU had a crappy 500 watt one and then the GPU right now im working on the Mobo and CPU but working under a budget not going over $370 on the cpu and mobo combined because what what ive read I can get alot of bang for the buck out of the i5 2500k I should be able to run anything CPU dependent at max settings from everything ive read but gotta upgrade the Mobo in order to upgrade the CPU lol its got 8GB of ddr3 1333 ram in the mobo in it now. figured i would just that for the time being lol

It will fit.

But u will need one more thing.

The Windows 7, because the old licence will expire with the HW changes.

If it is not the RETAIL versio, but only the OEM, than u need a new one for $100.


OEM is cheaper, because it can be used only on 1 PC.

Retail is more expensive, because it could be installed again on another PC, if u decide to build a new one, where u will change all the major components, like motherboard and CPU.

The OEM doesn't allow those changes. So if u build PC and upgrade often(every 12 mo.) than u will benefit from retail licence. And u will also get support from Microsoft.

OEM gets no support. Who cares, right : )

So get Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit ~ $99.99 @ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=32-116-...

As a student, u can get even better deal, check http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msstore/cat/categor...

If u change the mobo for an equal mobo and use the same CPU, it may be fine.

If u change the mobo and the CPU, and it is another brand yet, its an upgrade and u need a new licence with OEM.

Only retail would allow u to carry it to another PC and activate.

Nikorr is correct you cannot trasfer OEM its reserved to HW But Retail can and as you said you already did it then i think you can try it on new on also if not worked then get new one :) 

[ If your doing some piracy then i have to call up FBI dont worry just kidding :)  ]
