    I just bought Win7 Pro 64 at CompUSA this week and got it installed last night and today. Seems pretty solid on 4 GB of RAM - finding a "reasonably" priced source for 8GB of DDR2 RAM maybe a bit of fun....

    I'm guessing that $47 - $60 is reasonable so just go to newegg

    You're buying the key not the medium. You could call Microsoft and tell them you lost the CD they may send you one as a replacement with a new key but they would deactivate your old one. However there might be a fee. The easiest way is to just write down your existing key and get the ISO. Put the ISO on a bootable USB drive and leave it alone.

    If you ever do a clean install grub is easy to repair again to make your linux install accessible again.
