Vista Upgrade!! Prebuilt PC or can you build yourself?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey,

    I am just ordering the parts to build a new pc, core 2 duo 6600, 8800 Geforce... And was going to buy Windows XP Media Centre 2004 for the operating system. I saw it on sale with a coupon for Vista.

    However when reading the details it said the coupon could be removed if the system was not 'good' enough to qualify.

    Would I still be entitled to the normal upgrade to vista, even though I am building the PC my self, which would seem fair? Or do you have to get it prebuilt off a specific retailer?

    I'v tried contacting microsoft twice with this question and both times redirected to a link that was neither here or there. Hopefully other PC users can answer where microsoft avoid the question.

    Thanks for the help
