How do I put a new motherboard in and update my computer to Windows 8?

I'm putting in a new motherboard and Cpu and updating from a OEM to Windows 8. What order do I do that in? Do I put in the new motherboard and then use the Windows 8 disc? OR do I update first and then install the new motherboard?

I already checked to make sure all the parts work, and know that the Windows 7 OEM won't even acknowledge the motherboard and boot up.

Motherboard first, then Windows 8 installation. :)

Thank you. I wanted a second opinion, because the other person who answered said that it would be cheaper to buy a new computer. . .

You're welcome, and it certainly wouldn't be cheaper, lol, just easier.
