It's not easy to find Windows 7 Hope Premium OEM for much less than $100 from a reputable store online. The stores that sell below that price seem to sell grey market products with software keys that are sometimes rejected when the software is registered. Even a search of Fatwallet finds a lowest price of $98.59.

OEM software can be legitimately installed on any computer you have built, but I've never seen a license key rejected even when used on a name brand PC.

If I'm not mistaken, you can not upgrade on an OEM version....fresh install required. Also, if you're a personal business, you should consider BizSpark which gives you better options at usually a free price.

According to the website BizSpark is specifically for companies that are developing software.

You're mistaken on both points. OEM versions can be upgraded to Windows 8, and you can upgrade using an OEM disc. The install media and process is the same, but upgrading from XP will not retain installed apps regardless of which Win7 disc you use.

BizSpark licenses are only for use on development devices, for the purposes of software development and testing. They are not for your Internet girlfriend's computer.
