    How to use old hard drive with OS on new PC?

    I'm reusing my old hard drive in my new build, the donor PC was a pre-built, so I don't have a windows key. Is it just plug and play, or do I need to do anything before taking it out the donor PC? Is this even possible? Money is very tight right now so I'd rather not buy a windows key.

    Min/Avg/Max FPS in Doom

    Is there an app that can record min/avg/max fps in Doom? I know there is the built-in fps counter, but it doesn't give an average. Same with Steam's built-in counter. I tried Fraps, but it doesn't seem to want to record for me in Doom (2016).
