I just checked my Win 7 product ID and it shows OEM.
So I have to get a new OS to work with my new MB. Given the option I'd like to go with Win 10 because it will support DirectX 12. I have already installed Win 7 on the SSD (new) when I was "upgrading" my old pc which subsequently turned into a new build. See links here and here. So I am guessing that means formatting the SSD.
When it comes to choosing between Win 10 Home and Pro, which is the best one to go with? I know it depends on what you'll be using the PC for and much of the added benefits I may not use given it is a flight sim build primarily. I did happen to watch a video that stated the Home edition uses 128GB of ram and the Pro 2TB. Can anyone explain this more clearly to me?
As for the new parts:
i5-6600K 3.50GHz + CM Hyper 212 EVO fan
