Eagle-eyed forum member samkiller42 writes to tell us that Overclockers UK already has Windows Vista on pre-order and the prices aren't too bad either.

At least, if you stay away from retail versions of the new OS - the OEM versions are where the 'bargains' can be found.

Windows Vista Home Basic weighs in at just over £60 inc. VAT, while the full version will set you back over £180 with Mr. Brown's cut added in.

The OEM version of Home Premium is selling for under £80 including VAT, compared to the retail version that is selling for just under £220. Finally, Vista Ultimate retails at just over £135 for the OEM version, while the full retail version will set you back an extortionate £360 give or take a few quid.

You can pre-order your copy of Vista right here.

I think I'll be buying a new hard drive at the same time as buying an OEM copy of Vista Ultimate, because there's no way I can justify spending a silly amount of money on the retail version of Vista Ultimate. Yow.
