Hey, I want to build a powerful Gaming PC for less than £1100 and I would like someone to look at the parts that I have chose. I used PCPartPicker to choose my parts, and my build list can be found here.

I havent added an OS because I want to download a Windows 7 64 Bit ISO of the internet, then put in a license key that I will buy. However, I do want an OEM version of the OS. Is It possible to buy an OEM License on its own, or does the OEM version only come on a disc?

Thanks :)

I would use Asrock Extreme6 mother board, change the memory to DDR3 1600 with a timing of 9-9-9-24 and the HHD to something with Sata 6.0Gb/s and 7200 RPM. If you have the money, I would add a OCZ Vector 128gb SSD.

OK I've changed that http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/EVu0
But what about the operating system? Would it be better to download an .ISO and buy a produck key, or should I just buy the CD? And where would I be able to buy a product key?
