So maybe its just in case of having to reinstall the operating system again and needing a new key?

No, the thing is, I just bought a few parts for my new build already but not the XP OEM disk yet. I just want to make sure that I can buy the OEM since I didnt order all of it together. Does that make any sense?

I don't think you need to keep the receipts - have you ever heard of MS asking to check your receipts? The retailer should only sell you an OEM copy if your buy a major hardware component
