Hello gentlemen,

I have recently built a new computer and am about to buy windows 7 from amazon. I have read the sticky on the different versions and have a question. I see listed windows 7 professional ( more expensive ) and windows 7 professional service pack 1 64 bit full system builder 1 disc ( less expensive ). What's the difference? Is the full system build an OEM copy, thus being cheaper? Is it because one only comes with 64 bit and the other comes with 32 as well? I'd hate to buy the cheaper one and find out its not what I want.
a b $ Windows 7

The Windows 7 Pro SP1 64bit is a System Builder edition which is a non-OEM disc. As indicated in the sticky, it is installable on one PC. These typically are cheaper on the front end.
