OEM's are designed for someone building their own computer.

Microsoft claims there are a few features you miss out on, but I haven't noticed anything extraordinarily different.


It's pretty much the difference of a hundred bones if I recall correctly.

You want the Home Premium 64 bit single disc OEM copy, not the retail version or the three pack.

Like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16832116488
