Windows 10 -- Or an older version of Windows that I can upgrade to Windows 10; Pro if possible.

Building a system and want to install Windows 10. I'm having trouble finding any kind of good deals on Windows 10, especially pro. Not sure if I can buy an older windows and still get free auto-update? Also, not sure about whether the guys selling Windows 10 on amazon are shady (possible gray market if not counterfeit products).

Thanks in advance!!

I bought a win 10 pro for ~$21 on ebay yesterday. Installation went fine. Check it out if you want: http://www.ebay.com/itm/252269456...ef402&cp=1

Edit: Strange until last night the link said Win 10 and now its says Win 8.1

I see the system builder's OEM for $114 and change on Amazon. Open box and new for $85. That seems to be a pretty good price, and Amazon protects your purchase should they turn out to be shady. I would, personally, go that route.

Ebay may be cheaper, but I'd be more concerned about it working properly. You should be able to upgrade for free, though, from any version of Windows within sometime this year. Microsoft announced free upgrades for all coming soon.

I know Ebay has vendors selling Windows 7 Pro (with free upgrade to Win 10) for around $50. Probably the best bet imo. You should be covered by Ebay if there is an issue.
