Upgrade version vs. oem Tags: OEM Ebay Windows 7 Last response: February 4, 2010 12:29 AM in Windows 7 Share gonintendo February 3, 2010 10:17:30 PM you can get win7 upgrades on ebay for around $50, so is it worth getting the oem version for ~$50 more? More about : upgrade version oem jaguarskx a b $ Windows 7 February 4, 2010 12:29:27 AM I would go with OEM 'cause if for some reason to need to do a reinstall you will need to: 1. Reinstall the old OS 2. Install the upgrade Not sure if "upgrade" requires you to call Microsoft to release the license. I actually would by Retail instead, but that's about $180 - $190.
