    morning all

    bit off the subject of gaming, but is it ok to buy windows XP OEM rather than the retail version for twice the price?

    I don't see why not. Some shops will not sell it to you unless you buy a piece of hardware with it though.

    Its absolutely fine and indeed I would endorse it.

    Reznor is correct but for example you could buy a keyboard / mouse at Scan for £3 and then you can buy Windows. Excellent!
