    I will buy an original windows 7 ultimate cd from the store.Besides,I'm planning to build a budget gaming pc.
    Okay. Thanks for that. That said, most people don't need the Ultimate version. You can save some substantial money with Home Premium for which you can use to upgrade your CPU or graphics.

    While Pro and Ultimate have more features they will NOT improve your gaming performance.

    Though we still don't know your budget, we now know you want a gaming machine. That Corsair case is actually a pretty nice case with lots of fan support and removable, washable filters (a must, in my book). It comes with 2 120mm fans which is nice, but gaming can really task a system. So I recommend you keep watch of your temps with a hardware monitoring program. I use and recommend CoreTemp for that. If you temps regularly go above 60°C and sit there more than a couple seconds, I would add another case fan.

    there are several sites who not only do extensive testing, but also update regularly with market conditions.

    The best bet is pick one of their builds that fits your budget and then optimize it to your market conditions and personal preferences.

    As a simple end user, don't bother with Ultimate. You'll get lots of crap pre-installed that you will never, ever use. see this chart for example

    If anything, keep the serial you purchased safe. If you lose your DVD, you can download the Windows 7 Home Premium image from Microsoft's website itself, it's completely legal.

    FTR, I would not consider myself a "simple end user" but no way do I need, nor have I missed Ultimate. Not sure I would call the extras in Ultimate "crap" but unless you provide IT support while connected to a corporate network and need multi-language support, you will be wasting your money.

    That said, Home Premium support Upgrade Anytime - where you can easily upgrade to the more featured packed versions if you find it necessary.
