    I've bought a few games from kinguin and not had any issues.

    You make a lot of false claims. Complaining about context does not absolve you from being incorrect.

    Ok guess I'm not understanding something here as well. I thought you could download Win 10 from a trusted and legit site for free but then had to purchase a key from a place such as kinguin.net . At least it seems that way from some of the youtube videos I've watched. So whats included in for the $139 from the MX site?

    I'm not sure if some versions still ship with an actual disk, but here some ship with the O/S pre-loaded on a USB drive..but for the most part download the ISO right from Microsoft, and your paying for the licence key essentially. Windows 10 will still work without activation, just some custom features will be disabled.

    The reason I posted what I did was a joke in what I thought was your response to the RAM, but you posted in between and then what I posted made no sense....anyhow.. nevermind carry on..lol

    There's actually a media creation tool that will download the ISO directly from Microsoft and either save it for you or create a bootable USB installer. You can even install the OS without a key for a month before it requires a valid activation key.

    If you still have a Windows 7 or 8 key you can still upgrade through the assisted users program.

    Right.....so I guess the key is cheaper though places like kinguin.net than direct from Microsoft.....but there's got to be a catch somewhere. Cant see MS allowing that to happen. If I'm going to buy this key somewhere else and have warnings and other irritating things happen later then I'd just wouldn't be bothered.

    Way off topic now but is there similar methods to purchase software such as MS office and Autocad at discounted prices. My current legit copies are 2007 versions.

    I will be doing a fresh new install of Windows 10 so I would just buy the key for it....$32 CDN. I a still using Vista on my Dell so no upgrade from that I guess.

    That explains my subsequent on-topic posts relating to the subject..

    Speaking of on-topic, please remain on-topic.

    Games yes, I wouldn't trust a $35 windows key from them though, not worth the risk of MS deactivating randomly due to TOS violation.

    Ok...perfect another point to consider. Thanks once again folks, its been a steep learning curve here the past few days and I must say its been fun and even exciting.

    As I told a guy once who asked me, "where do you learn how to do all the crap you do"....my response was that anyone who owns a PC these days and has access to the internet can pretty much learn to do anything if you want to put the time into it. Along with forums like these and youtube I've built furniture, made complicated repairs and mods to my equipment (bobcat, excavator, etc) , built speakers and Subwoofers, etc. and its all been from info provided by places like this. It takes dedication, patience and time from people like you to make sites like this enjoyable. Its great!!

    Just purchased one of the two remaining 950PRO SSd's from the MX store in Winnipeg, they dont usually mail parts out directly but I pleaded with the manager and he agreed to send it. feeling pumped lol.

    Now I just need to get decide between the GTX 1060 Windforce or Xtreme, MX dont have the Xtreme but it does seem superior to the Windforce for the same price. NCIX has the Xtreme for $374.

    Thats awesome dude!! I'm stoked that you could get one, I knew once they responded to the email you could persuade them..SWEET!!!

    As for the GPU, have you thought about a 1060 from Asus or MSI? The MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G would be a sweet choice too!!!! might be out of stock after BF/CM deal weekend.
