Can I use the product key activation twice?

i want to use the same product key activation (window xp pro), from my old computer and transfer it into a new computer that i just built (I don't like how windows vista and windows 7 operate because they use too much resource like the memory, hard drive space,...etc) I'm doubting that i can transfer my product key activation as long as i report it to the Microsoft company...
     So can i cancel my activation from my old computer and transfer it to the new computer through Microsoft?
     Is Keyfinder a possible solution?
