    Hi there

    Currently I am using Windows XP on Old Dell desktop PC with SSD. It is running quite well for my small task. I had a budget of $500 to upgrade my old desktop PC to Core i5. Can any one refer me where I can buy cheap windows 7 licenses so that I can upgrade my PC and OS within my budget.

    You can pre-order an upgrade version for Windows 7. I have added the link below for specifics on the different versions. Since you advised you have been using Windows 7 trial copy without any issues, you should be compatable. I have also added some other links with information in regards to Windows 7.

    Please let us know status. Thanks!

    What model dell do you have? Maybe instead you should go to Windows 10 Pro instead. The license probably for W7 and W10 I think would cost the same and going with W10 will future proof as you will be able to use the license on a new fresh install as well and not worry oh what happens in 2020 with W7 ends will I have to buy another license. If you just wanting a O/S then I say go with W10 Prox64.

    I don't think Microsoft is selling W7 anymore. At least that is what I have heard. They want you to buy W10 which really bites big time. If you look around you can still find W7 for sale. Google is your friend :D

    I would look for the 64bit version myself.

    I hope that you'll get a new PSU, and if you don't, you at least know that the Dell PSU doesn't have proprietary motherboard connectors.

    Windows 10 pro will cost you about $200.00 and windows 10 home $119.00. . To much since you can find windows,7 for under $20.00 and it runs a hole lot better.
