I just built a new PC. Can somebody explain to me this.
Do I need to get the OEM version of Windows 8 to get my computer up and running or can I use the Windows 8 upgrade and go from there and buy other licenses after my computer is up and running?

OEM, the Windows 8 Upgrade is not a full install and requires an existing OS already installed which you don't have.
