this is sort of under the os category as well, but im currently building a computer, and I want to use my hardrive i currently have in my comp right now. its a 500 gb. I plan on getting windows 8 wich is only 40 dollars if I download it straight from microsoft.com. Not to be a cheap ass but i dont feel like spending the extra 20 bucks for the disc, is there a way i can do it online?
Since Windows 8 isn't doing so well in sales you should be able to get a good deal on a disc. Also if you currently have Windows 7 I would stay with that untill Microsoft fixes up Win 8 to be as good as 7. There is no need to rush and get Win 8.
