Video card wouldn't matter. If it's a motherboard, you'd need to be changing it because the original went bad for it to be legal.

The correct term for the disc you have is OEM. It follows the same installation policy as retail.
However, if you get the deployment package you can buy blocks of activations. 25, 50, 100 and so on. Better have some deep pockets if you go that route. It's over 1000 usd for the lowest tier.

Also you're dancing on the edge of one of the forum's policies about asking for illegal information.
