Correct buy the full install, do not buy the upgrade. You will be performing a clean install to my understanding. But don't purchase that from tigerdirect.....go here:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16837102153

You will save yourself a lot of money.....

ahh....i see. Newegg doesn't ship there huh? Well, try pricewatch.com, they might have some campanies that ship there. You can search for that operating system and it will come up with the lowest prices from different companies. make sure you read everything before buying though, some companies that it pulls up can be tricky the way they word things. When you pick something out post the link and let someone look at it to see and make sure it's the right thing. Hope you find what you need.
