Is there any real down fall to buying the system builder disc compared to the retail disk for my new build. I am going to use Vista Home pro with the coupon for Win 7. Thanks.

The OEM version cannot be transferred to another PC once installed. Also, you do not receive any support from Microsoft with the system builder software. When was the last time MS helped you out??

For a new build, I recommend the OEM version, but that's just my opinion.

I agree with Moby. The only real difference is the price and licensing.
