I just installed Win7Pro on a new build and now am thinking of swapping processors. Is this going to cause Windows to deactivate it's license? Any other considerations I should look at before swapping the processors?

A processor change alone shouldn't trigger reactivation.  There's an outside chance you may need to reinstall your systemboard drivers after swapping, but as long as you have got a compatible processor you should be fine.
