I just found out recently that some of the future game will take advantage of directx 11, that resulted in better performance in the game. Since I'm using XP Pro right now, I'm thinking if I should upgrade to 7 or not.
I'm in tight budget...I went to e-bay to search for windows 7 retail OS. Then I found out that several people sell keys for about $15 to $25. My concern is whether those keys are legit or not.
This seller came into my attention: http://cgi.ebay.com/...=item27adcf5da5
Do you think that key is legit and not just a generated key? He's the only top rated seller that sell the key for that cheap price. Others are sellers from vietnam and florida with several to 0 positive feedbacks.
Should I take a chance and buy it from him?

As far as I know, keys or serial numbers only come with genuinE products, OEM software being the cheapest. So you would have to have parated software to use the key with.

This listing (170419772837) has been removed, or this item is not available

It's obviously pirated as it has been pulled. I understand you want the best price possible so always be careful when it seems too cheap. As a general rule of thumb, I never purchase software on eBay at all.
