Default Advice Windows Registration

My old P4 system has finally died. Surprised it lasted as long as it did.
Looking at replacements at the moment. Very keen on this i-5core pc, which is relativily cheap. It comes with no operating system though.
I had windows 7 on my dead one, a legal copy I went out and brought, all registered with Microsoft etc.
Now if I install this on my new PC will I have any issues registering it, as its already been registered?
I'm at loss. Been on Microsoft's faq's and can't find nothing

If it won't activate you can still call MS and tell them you changed your system. They will guide you on the phone what to do.

Should be no problem installing to a new system. You might need to do the telephone activation thingie, but that's easy.

I saw Windows 8 going for $28 retail in a box. Can't be that hard to indulge in the latest disappointment.

Is that the full OS, or the bit you need to purchase from the store when your new rig is 'Windows 8 ready'? The 'key' or whatever they're calling it these days?

Windows 8 pro upgrade is $30... probably what he was looking at. You need a legit copy of xp, vista or 7 to use it.
