I am about to purchase Windows 8 Pro Upgrade through Microsoft upgrade advisor program. I know how to do a clean install with that, but my concern is a whole new system.
I will be installing it on my current system, but I will likely be buying a new system soon. Can I use that same product key with this new system? How does one accomplish that?
Anything else I should know?

If I understood you correctly, you can install the key to a new system, once the old system is wiped?
But then you said, the new system needs an OS on it?

you should go and actually read the EULA for the Upgrade version. the System Builder one allows you to transfer machines I'm not sure how it'd work with the upgrade version, since technically once you upgrade the old OS's licence key is replaced by the new one and isn't "valid" anymore..
