retail or upgrade version?

k so I'm confused with upgrading to windows 7. i am currently running the windows 7 RC and for upgrading to the full version I'm unsure if i need to buy the retail version of windows 7 or if i can use the upgrade disk for windows 7.

The upgrade version IS a retail version. There is also a full retail version.

All you need is the retail upgrade
