    I was browsing the forum and I haven't found a clear answer to this question: I'm going to be building a new computer on Monday and I was wondering if I can get away with using the upgrade edition on it for a clean install. It'd be much cheaper to buy the $40 download, rather than pay $110 CAN and then have it shipped. Anyone know if it'll work?

    yes you can even the $14.99 upgrade promo key will work for a clean install. If I were you I'd register for one of those it is very easy and you can just say you built your own pc.
