Unless your Windows was retail, yea, you need to buy a new license.
Unless you plan to OC that 2500k, and might as well, the stock one that comes with the CPU is fine. Scythe and Xigmatek are my top two. Noctua if you can afford it.
If I wanted to, could I get a 2nd video card like mine and run them together? How would that change what you have suggested so far?
also, I very much appreciate your help
