Hello Rein, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Replacing the graphics card alone usually would not affect being able to activate Windows. The motherboard is the main hardware that Windows activation is attached to.

Unless you just wanted to, you do not need to format and reinstall Windows to replace the graphics card. Instead, you could just uninstall your current video drivers, replace the card with the new one, then install the drivers for the new card.

If normal activating online should fail, you should be able to activate by phone.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
