If you get the upgrade, you have to have Vista installed allready. If you get the OEM, then you have to format your computer and install from scratch.

Jo3, I understand that link was a normal un-cracked copy of vista, but no torrent links of any kind are allowed so I deleted it.

Delux, the $119 is real. bestbuy charges an arm and a leg for everything.

My only question between the two, mainly because of the large price difference is whether or not one is a full version as opposed to one being an upgrade, Because the Upgrade for Home Premium is that of what the Canadian is showing..119.99.

IIRC when I worked at Best Buy we could not change the prices of windows product nor Apple unless directly told to do so by them..

No, It's 119.99. So I'm almost positive the Canadian link is that of the Upgrade.
