Built a pc but... what windows 8 do I buy?

Like the title says, I recently built a computer by buying parts online.

And the final step is to buy a copy of windows and install it into my computer

However... I have no idea what I'm supposed to buy.

I found this
http://tinyurl.com/nr64uou

but it says Microsoft Windows 8 Upgrade DVD.

Does the "upgrade" mean I need a version of windows to install it?

What product do I really need to buy?

edit: Would this work?
