    Guys here is a tip how to get windoxs 7 really cheap and fully legal , just wait till you need a new Video card or hard drive etc, and then buy the windows 7 OEM with it, you will save about 210 usd on the retail price, this is not blackhat , just a friendly tip.

    This doesn't make any sense but it is worth looking into. Which sites offer this feature? I'm not sure why buying a new video card would allow me to buy a discounted OEM copy of Windows 7. But, who knows...

    Many places online allow you to buy oem software with any hardware purchase. So look for a $5 item and Win 7 OEM. If it lets you check out you're golden. I'd start with tigerdirect newegg or zipzoomfly .

    Thanks. This is good to know for the future. It's always good to have a legal copy around.

    I think we all know about warez forums. If you can get a legit copy of Windows 7 for apx $100, go for it. You'll waste more time trying to hack, crack, and update. Sure, you can do it today, but what about when you reformat 1, 2, 3 or even 5 years from now. Do you know how many versions of XP I obtained over the past 8 years? Having a legit copy would have saved me at least 25 hours. Don't waste your time trying to save little money when you can take that time and make big money.

    Most of the computer stores in my area sell it as a System Builder's version with the purchase of a qualifying hardware item (video card, mother board, etc.)

    If you know someone in college, students can get Microsoft stuff for *dirt* cheap.
