Windows Product Activation checks the following ten things. Some score more than others. If you deviate too far from what you registered (i.e. you completely rebuilt your computer from scratch) you will need to phone MS and enter a 50 digit key.
The WPA system checks ten categories of hardware:
IDE Adapter (effectively the motherboard)
Network Adapter (NIC) and its MAC Address
RAM Amount Range (i.e., 0-64mb, 64-128mb, etc.)
Processor Serial Number
Hard Drive Device
Hard Drive Volume Serial Number (VSN)
CD-ROM / CD-RW / DVD-ROM
