I'm looking to get a new video card fairly soon. I've been looking at possibly getting 2 video cards, but I only have 1 pci-e x16 slot on my motherboard. I have windows 7 home premium 64bit OEM on my computer, and from what I've read by searching through google, changing your motherboard qualifies as a new computer and your OS can't be used anymore. I would like to get clarification on this. If I would have to buy a new copy of windows maybe id just get 1 card or even a dual gpu card. Also, if I did buy a new copy of windows, would I have to reformat my harddrive and reinstall using the new product key, or could I just type in the new key somewhere to change it?
