For anyone who has a similar problem in the future:

took both the processor and motherboard back and got the Asus mobo I was talking about. Computer worked fine with GPU and everything installed for the entire 2 hours I was using it. My conclusion is that the CPU was bad, which may have been causing the motherboard to short-circuit.

Thanks for the replies! So today I took the computer to work to have some dudes take a look at it and one even brought their 1000W PSU. The same thing was happening. So I took the mobo back on my lunch break and picked up the same model as a replacement. This time, it keeps power, but there is no post or video display at all. After a few reboots it did eventually get to post, while in BIOS it randomly shut down and then would not show video again. Tried both on-board video output and output through the GPU. I plan on returning the mobo and processor after work and am probably going to go with an Asus mobo this time...

The problem MAY have been that it sticks out too far and would have made contact with that side fan, but I'm not sure. I'm not a huge fan of it either, but hey it was free

As far as Windows goes, Microsoft usually only allows one product key per version sold, thus one copy per computer. That being said, there are ways to get windows for free, but I do not condone them :P If I were you, I would buy the cheapest version of Windows 7 or 8 you can find and upgrade to 10 for free (if 10 is what you want). If there is a way to do what you are describing then I would love for someone to share!

Second, you can create a backup of all the stuff you want on your laptop (minus OS) and just restore that to the new PC once you've installed Windows.

I'm finishing up a build tonight that is very very similar to this one. Same CPU, GPU, and PSU. Very similar Mobo and and storage choices. I'll be posting soon with how it runs!

I plan on running some virtual environments. I like to do pen testing and things like that in virtual environments I can blow up after I exploit them.

Thanks a lot for you help. I upgraded the processor just because with 16gb ram and an 8gb gpu, the cpu would probably have been my first upgrade. I still won't need a cooler eh?

Redid everything using an i5, kept my 16gb of RAM though ;) A guy at work who is a gamer tells me new games are using upward of 6gb of RAM. His prime example was GTA. I'd also like to be able to stream and listen to music while playing games, so I'm going 16 :P

it doesn't include a monitor, but I can wait for a sale on one of those and use my acer in the meantime
