I currently have an asus A55bm-e with a A8-6600k cpu. I just bought a asrock H97 pro4 with a i5 4460 to go with it. I also got a xfx r9 290. Will i have to get a new copy of windows for the upgrades to work?

Can try making good backups of your data, ensure Win is up to date and give it a try, Win (7-8) will often see the new hardware, load default drivers, and from there you can update with the latest mobo and GPU drivers, the run a good registry cleaner (Wise has a free version), then will prob have to reactivate WIn
