I heard something about sites that sell just the CD key of windows for discounted prices. Are those real.

The cheapest legit way is to buy the upgrade version (Newegg sells it for $70, I think) and then do the double install method. Look it up, there's plenty of guides. Microsoft themselves have said this is a legal method. Or you could just not buy it at all and then just go off of an indefinite trial period (again, plenty of guides), which I suppose is legal but probably more along the lines of a grey area.

Find someone you know who is a student. A friend's sibling, your own friend, you maybe.

Then proceed to go to bookstore and get it for cheap. My W7 ultimate was 30 bucks, while a lot of schools offer it for free.

Are you in College or know someone in College? Ask them to get it for you, usually free if you just download the installer instead of getting the disk.

If you live in or near oceanside California I can hook you up with a student discount (60.00 or so). I'll need a favor in return though >.>

I have w7 home premium but I want ultimate so I can utilize all of my ram, which isn't really worth it I know. I tried the windows anytime upgrade from control panel, costs $140 to upgrade, I put in my all info, get to the payment screen, price is now close to $180 + taxes. Thanks for converting the currency at the second-last part of the process and never even pointing it out microsoft.
...And I have here IrRUhhRaAyUH--but it doesn't even matter.
