So I have windows 10 right now and am planning to upgrade my cpu, motherboard, and my ram. Do I need to buy windows again or can I somehow transfer it over to the new motherboard/cpu? If I can transfer the windows how do I do it? Thanks
 
Depends on if its a OEM (for example included with a Dell or HP) copy or not. If its a retail copy you should be able to just reinstall it. If its OEM you will need to buy a retail copy of Windows or look for a cheap OEM key, usually 20-30usd.

Of course you can just download and use Windows 10 without a key with some minor restrictions and a watermark.
