1. Buy the Windows 8 Student Upgrade Pro for 69.99 This is the cheapest option and it gives me the Pro version(retails at $200) Cons: Can't install it as a fresh OS unless you do a workaround. Non transferable license(?)
2. Buy Windows 8 OEM System Builders for $99.99 This is more expensive and it only gives access to Windows 8 Core. But you can install as a fresh OS without any workarounds and if I buy from the Microsoft call number I can transfer it to future PC builds
3. Buy Windows 8 Pro OEM System Builders for ~$120 Same as the above but it's slightly more expensive because it gives you the Pro version.
Which should I do?

I follow this guide when I have to reinstall Windows 8. Have yet to have an issue with it, used it both on my friend's as well as my own computer for doing clean installs after a complete wipe. We both took advantage of the $15 upgrade deal when Windows 8 first came out, upgrading our Windows 7 keys.
