I'd like to find a place where I can make as much software purchase as possible for my new rig (I've used sites like PriceGrabber, Google and eBay in an attempt to find a good price)
The software I'm looking for is:
Windows Vista Ultimate OEM 64-bit (NewEgg = $200, best price = $180)
SQL Server 2005 Developer x64 (NewEgg = $42)
Office Basic 2007 OEM (NewEgg = $178, best price = $138)
As it stands, I'd prefer less vendors so shipping doesn't end up killing me.
I'm also looking for a Quickbooks/Quicken software for Vista 64-bit, but I've heard horrible stories of QB2007's load times and performance, and Quicken 2007 seems to be riddled with bugs and foreign technical support (which I don't tolerate) - so if you have a suggestion of software that handles related abilities and works on Vista 64-bit, I'd love to hear it.
Are you a student? If so, you can usually get cheap pricing for software through your campus.
One time I did sign up for a computer class at a community college and they gave out free and legit software like Windows XP Pro and Visual Basic for students. We called up Microsoft to activate them and it worked fine.
