AMD to Intel question

18 June 2012 - 05:29 PM

So I have recently been getting into PC building and gaming and assembled my 1st PC from scratch in March. It's an AMD FX 6100 coupled with 8 gigs G Skill 1600 RAM and a Geforce 550ti. Not exactly "master race" worthy, but this was kind of a practice build that I plan on eventually selling.

Anyways, I am thinking of going Intel, mostly for PS2 emulation and gaming in general. I am targeting an i5 3570 build(left out the k for now as im not sure I want to OC right now), and will probably keep the 550ti for now. I also have a copy of Windows 7 home, and was wondering if there is any kind of limit as to how many times I can re-install due to new hardware?

And what would be the easiest way to back up my games and stuff? I just have a single HDD right now, but am planning on getting a 1TB and/or a SSD.
