There are often discount codes floating around the web that will get you a further 10-20% off as well.
Yeah, I was considering that too... same price as one copy of ultimate.
BTW, do you run 32 bit or 64 bit win7? I'll probably go 64 so I can take advantage of extra ram when I build my new kit (in case you haven't noticed, I'm slowly re-entering gaming with a shiny new HD6970 Gigabyte OC2 but it's severely hampered by my elderly E8500 Core2Duo).
My Thermaltake PSU isn't rated for my new card, but I have a brand new Seasonic waiting for me to rip the case open and install it.
Next up - CPU, MB & Ram, which will also require Win7 & maybe a new HDD. Might have to wait until after Tash's birthday so I know how much money we still have.
