Windows 7: Can't find a reputable seller who is selling Win 7 Pro/Ultimate

Can't find a reputable seller who is selling Win 7 Pro/Ultimate

I've been browsing through stores like Amazon & Newegg looking for full versions of Windows 7 Ultimate (preferably) or Professional. But either Amazon sells it at prices like $380 - $400, I could've sworn when I saw Windows 7 in stores like Bestbuy before Windows 8 came out. It was prices at like $150 - $220 this price jump is ridiculous. Oh also Newegg doesn't even have the full version of Windows 7 Ultimate or Pro on their site anymore. Or i'm not looking hard enough on newegg.

So.. could someone find me a brand new copy of Windows 7 Ultimate or Professional that is genuine at a good price?

Thank you,
HaneZane001

Because it is popular. More so since the release of windows 8. Not many non oem versions around now, and they fetch high prices.

You will be ok with an oem system builder version, just means you aren't supposed to move it to another machine.

OEM is your best option. All the rest is streetrobbery.

That is OEM. Methinks the OP is looking for retail. Sadly, those are gone. The only places I've seen them listed are dodgy and the products are probably counterfeit or they are *&^%$#@! speculators who have outrageously jacked up the prices. OEM is the only safe option left.

But i'm building a custom computer so i'll be switching around the parts and such even more so when intels haswell-ep, broadwell & skylake comes out. so I'm in need of a retail sadly. I've found places like dms which is selling it at $150 but i've heard bad reviews about then. then one other place called bonanzo but i don't know if the copys they sell are genuine.
