I've been building my own PCs for 25 years. That doesn't mean I'm an expert, as I don't do it all that often, and it gets harder over time as their are SOOO many new technologies and choices! So I research things and learn, and have the experience to figure things out. Plus threads like this help a lot.

The new MOBO covers everything I need. I went through the specs of 2+ dozen boards before deciding. I've been looking at this, off-n-on, since last summer.

Yow! The price on that M2 is great! However, I'm considering getting the 1 TB for $115 USD, as in the long term a larger drive is more useful. Gotta talk to the budget director (AKA wife) about this.

Windows licensing is not an issue, as a have a multi-activation key through Windows Dev Essentials. Once a key is claimed, it's yours. I just checked the key for Win10 also works for Win11
