The more expensive one supports both 32 and 64 bit versions, the cheaper one is for 64 bit only. The more expensive one also has a $50 security software gift for free. If you have more than 2GB of RAM and a 64 bit CPU, then it will be the better choice to get the cheaper one, if you ask me.

Not even close.

One of those copies is OEM, which stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. The OEM copies are meant for computer resellers, and you are technically violating the licensing agreement if you buy an install an OEM copy of Windows for personal use. The actual software is identical.

to make a long story short............... buy the OEM version and put it on your personal computer. don't worry about breaking "gods" law..... put the savings in your pocket and get a bang out of life.
