Maybe this is in the wrong category, but I'm thinking of building a new computer. I'd get windows 7 of course, but if I buy the OEM edition, will I receive an upgrade to windows 8 for 15 dollars?

Basically all I see on this promotion is that it applies to a purchase of a new PC. If this doesn't apply to custom builds, maybe I should be better off just buying a similarly equipped system.

Google leads me to the vague "Buy a PC, get the upgrade for $15" but that's not solid enough for me. Anyone know for sure?

The win8 upgrade is only for retail copies of win7.

If you intend to build for win8 then simply put the release preview on your machine until the final release comes out this fall.
