    hi,i have a small problem,i wanted to upgrade my motherboard with a Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UD3P AMD 790X (Socket AM3/AM2+) so next year i could add a phemon II.or would a cheaper motherboard do? (i would not be doing any overclocking)
    my next thing is,i have lots of games,but the trouble is i dont think that i will be able to play them on a differant motherboard,Due to the serial not matching the motherboard,Or is there a way around that?
    Because i wanted to play GTA 4 again with that phemon.
    thanks for your time and help :):)

    Think you're getting mixed up with the Operating System. It won't affect any of your games or applications.

    i know about windows not being able to install on another motherboard.I will be using windows 7 when i get that,It's just the games,When you install the games,You have to put in a serial,to register it,And i thought then it would only be for that motherboard?

    No. You aren't registering it to a motherboard, you are registering it to yourself as the owner of that key.

    Yeah, games will install on anything you want as long as you're the legal owner.
