New build how to get windows

I'm building a gaming pc on a budget and windows 8 really screws up my budget. How can I get it cheap? I don't want to spend $90 on it. Should I buy a copy of windows xp off ebay and use the upgrade online? I'm not sure what to do. I am looking for recommendations on how to get windows 8, preferably 64bit, without having to spend $90. Thanks

    EFF YEAH!!! Linux!!!

    i recommend Ubuntu/Lubuntu or Mint for beginners.
  4. I guess I didn't catch the right drift then....
  5. Actually, I wasn't referring to Linux. :lol:

    I was talking about the dark deed!
  6. Personally, I only have one computer with that sort of setup. If you are talking about what I think you are talking about. Windows is getting expensive.

    You are just going to have to suck it up and buy the $90 software. Not worth breaking the law for that kind of money, is it?

    What you are saying is kind of like if your employer asked, "You know, paying John his full wage is really eating into my budget. Can you think of a way I could get him to do the same work for less money, or even free?"
  8. If u r not want to spend $90 use linux or Unix its freeware but downloading charges apply.
  9. Any one know about offers in windows8 please tell him.
