Retail? Easy. OEM? Not possible.

Yea, Win10 32/64 USB stick. I am making a list of parts, over the summer ill be buying 2 parts every 2 weeks to build a second rig so ill need a second key in the end but will transfer this key to new mobo when i order, never did this before.

I understand the reason behind buying a couple parts at a time, but unless you find a crazy sale on something, I'd just save up and buy everything at once. If something is DOA, you may not find out for a month or more, at which point your return/exchange window will be gone, and you may have to deal with warranty service instead which can take significantly longer.

Thanks, I was gonna buy the mobo last due to this, I am currently upgrading my current rig part by part until i can just re-rebuild it again so each part will get tested as they come in. :D
