You should be able to carry it over to new PCs in the future--it's not "OEM" as far as I can tell.

Not sure why you need the Pro version, but it's your money.
I tend to overkill and I thought why not spend the $80 extra and have the pro version "just in case" I might need it. If I truely understood the difference between the 2 versions I might get the home version

Windows 10 Pro isn't "better" compared to Home.

It just has some additional features that will be activated that would remain unactivated if you bought the Home version.

The chances of you needing those features is small.

If you can't spend the $80 on something better like an SSD, new hard drive, booze, or floozies, then go for Pro.

Man, you are easily influenced Just stay with W7 if you don`t like W10.

Save the $200 you`d spend on the Pro version, send that card back and put all that money towards a 1060

Everyone has clearly noted that I don't need a gamer or high end graphics card why would you suggest I do that

Oh come on, you get plenty of help, don`t be a spoiled sport, it was only a suggestion. No one`s twisting your arm.

And I am not everyone, if you`re not a gamer then you don`t even need a card, the 4790K will be fine, I had one, I know.

We suggest that you save the $200 and just create a W10 installer, but you do what you want.

Too many limitations...I/m OK with spending $200 for a retail copy of windows 10 pro

Hi, yesterday my tower started to make ding sounds. At first, it was just in IE, now in Chrome. I have been having trouble with my mouse. The sound is more intermittent today. I tried using CHKDSK, but with no result. It looks like it is healthy. I might have malware because those weirds...

Ding
Since I have my new Windows 7 PC it periodically emits an audio ding for no apparent reason. There are no audio or email settings that would account for that. Anyone have an explanation and cure for this annoying thing? Thanks. Hal.
