Default Selling a computer...OEM it binded or even possible?

A confusing topic name, but I'm curious...I'll be selling my desktop shortly, and I just bought Windows MCE *OEM* for it. I've since registered I'm guessing it will be worthless when parting out the PC.

Is there any value to it? (As in...if I included it with the motherboard, could someone else potentially use it?)

I'm thinking the OEM translates to "register it, sell computer -> trash it" but thought I'd check anyhow...if anyone knows!
