I don't know if I agree with you not being able to reuse your OEM version of Windows. I have a buddy that builds and repairs computers for a living (Similar to Troy) and I just asked him about this very same issue when i upgrade my parents computers mobo, hard drive, processor, and RAM. He told me something along the lines of... "Microsoft actually words it something like, you can use windows for 2 CPU's" Apparently, he was getting at that I didn't have to buy a new version of XP for my parents computer. And that was the specific question I asked him when he gave that answer.
I believe I(you) will have to call Microsoft and explain you are upgrading your computer, and according to my very experienced friend, they should be fairly compliant with letting you reuse windows.
Troy, I would really like to see what you have to say about that, you are much more experienced than me.

I would say you have two options then.
1. Just go ahead and buy a new version
2. Call Microsoft themselves and ask, see what they say.
Go from there.
And of course, don't do anything illegal!
