I believe you will find the retail (full) version more expensive than that. Make sure you are getting the retail version if that is what you want.

The reason why i am doing the purchases from this place because i like to go and see my product in person
I don't like my things shipped because i used to work in a shipping enviorment and i know for a fact they are cruel to your product

Anyway that intel one is ok but not to sound like a jerk but i dont want intels stuff in my machine i used to run a p4 for years and alot of the time the design was a headache heating issues list goes on but it was a ok machine i guess got me this far

The one you picked is an upgrade version. It usually requires a legal copies of XP or Vista. The 199.00 version is probably the full retail version.

Here are the user ratings from Newegg for the Corsair Force SSD

not a bad rating

The copy of windows i showed you i didnt need my vista package it just installed clean

they recently came out with the full version cause at the time of purchase it was only the upgrades available as far as i knew cause i would have gotten the full right of the jump

I have only but once up grade over vista but after that i wiped it clean many times and re installed

There is no difference. If you qualify for an upgrade (which is not being checked but done on the honor approach), you can use it.

WHS, it is my understanding (have never used one) that you have to have a previous COA number to put in. This is a brand new system.

That is correct. That is why I said:" If you qualify ...".

So what he should get is either the $200.00 retail version or the 99.00 System Builders version. Right? And for those technical about the rules, sell it to his wife for $1.00.
