I was wondering.... does anyone know where I could purchase a key for Windows 10 Po x64 for cheap? I could then probably download a Win10 PRO x64 ISO from somewhere and use the key. Thanx in advance :)

There is no cheap.  The best you can do is purchase an OEM copy, which is about $140.

 

An OEM license can only legally be used on one machine and not transferred to another.

So Basically if I purchased this key and decided to upgrade my mobo and CPU in the future, I would be in trouble right?

Being the key only can activate on one machine.

Correct.  If you want to move the license in the future you need to purchase the retail version.

Unless you live in Germany, according to the Windows 10 Terms of Use they can move an OEM license to another machine!

 

 

Transfer rights. I heard some observers speculate that the new terms would limit Windows 10 transfer rights. Nope. The new license agreement preserves the longstanding transfer rights: OEM copies are locked to the device on which they're sold, retail copies can be transferred to a different device as long as the old copy is removed first. (The Windows 10 EULA includes a specific exception for PC buyers in Germany, who are allowed to transfer OEM software thanks to a court ruling.)

You might be able to get Windows 8/8.1 for cheaper price than Windows 10 OEM

 

Then, you can upgrade for free to Windows 10


If I am helping you and I don't respond within 2 days, feel free to send me a PM
