Ordered my hardware from Newegg and my Win7 from a separate vendor. Newegg's shipping is fast. My hardware is sitting here waiting to be put together. I'm not exactly sure when the OS will get here. Is there a way to install windows for a short amount of time and then add the product key later? I guess I would have to have a copy on a disc somewhere?

Yes there is. You can download and install any version of Windows 7 for a 30 day period before you have to activate it. Microsoft makes the ISO files for Windows 7 publicly available at the following location:

Please note that you must install the version of Windows that you ordered. If you do not, you will be unable to activate it once it arrives.
