HERE is the Office 2007 prices, however I will never ever use Overcockers again after they messed me around few times on orders, so be weary of them is all I say.

Dont think the OEM copy comes with crap, thats just once the manufacturer like dell gets their hands on it.

Getting around OEM isn't hard for retailers. Take Newegg for example - if you don't buy anything with an OEM piece of software, they usually send it along with something like a spliced piece of wiring that you really don't have any use for, but it is hardware.

! wow !

Id be more likely to go for home premium @ ?78 - oh, and these OEMs are clean versions, but can only be activated on one machine (for teh noobs;)) ).

I hope these prices stick around - oh, and you dont need to buy hardware;))

I was also referring to some of the unnecessary features in Vista.

Problem is that you only get a 32-bit disk or a 64-bit disk. It would be nice to be able to choose between what version you wanted (and switch if nessecery)

Where's the problem? You'd have to be way past retarded to use 32bit Vista. By far the most stringent argument to switch over to Vista is 64bit, and if you take that away, there's hardly a really good reason left, so you could stay just as well with XP.

(And don't talk to me about?that?botched XP64, it's a bad joke).

Besides that, I'd rather take Vista Business Oem - much cheaper than Ultimate Oem?(only?~2/3 price) and not as much superfluent stuff.

Are you kidding me?

64bit is still in it's infancy for normal desktop users.

Unless you are actually USING the 64bit addressing the os is actually WORSE than the 32bit version, especially when it comes to driver support and overall performance.

And you should read before you start calling people "retarded".

Before i switched to Vista Ultimate x64 i was using XP x64 and i find it to be a little snappier than the x86 flavours mainly due to the better IO performance, anybody who says it's worse clearly hasn't gave it a fair go. On the four of my PC's the only driver problem i had was with a netgear WG111T wireless USB adaptor on the kids PC and to be fair it was crap anyway so i replaced it. Also taking in to account the kernel patch guard which makes the OS more secure and more stable is enough on it's own to make me choose x64.

I'm planning on getting Ultimate or Home Premium. I wish it was 300 USD for Ultimate non-upgrade and 150 for Home Premium. I'm staying with 32bit because of compatibility of programs and drivers until both are equally equal in both. BTW, would an OEM copy of Windows work with a custom built PC?

OC is just round the corner from me :)

I get my student loan next week :) Woooo

Ultimate 64 here I come :)

If it's this cheap for an OS at OEM I have no need to get a pirated copy.

Wow, I have never met someone so... ignorant! 64-bit Vista may be good in time, but there's no way you can say the 32-bit version isn't more developed (driver-wise). And honestly, I don't see why people are so caught up in getting a 64-bit OS. The only REAL advantages are from having the CPU play with 64-bit numbers at a time instead of 32-bit (only useful for programs with lots of math) and addressing more than 4GB of RAM on one system.

How many enthusiasts have more than 4GB of RAM?? Heck, how many enthusiasts even HAVE 4GB of RAM? And those 64-bit programs that are everywhere? Yeah, not here buddy!

To me, driver support is much more important than having an insane amount of RAM or massive number crunching. Come back to be when that problem is solved. :whistle:
