System Builder Question

What is the difference between

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional Upgrade http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832116714

and

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit - OEM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832116992

It seems most recommend the service pack option when building - What am I not getting? Is that possible? What's the actual difference?

I can't seem to find any information out there with details on which is the better choice. I understand the basic concept of the service pack, but maybe I'm missing something obvious.

I figure there is a simple answer out there, hope you all can help!

Best,
Spencer

  1. Look like I found an answer. Feel free to close/lock this :P
  2. The SP1 will save you a lot of time with ungrades to Win 7 after you install Win 7 without SP1.
