A single user copy of XP-Home is currently selling for 159 UKP (and that is a "web exclusive" price, in-store it's 180!) from PC World.

OEM copies are useless because if you change the mobo it will no longer work, i.e it is a non-transferable OS which stays registered to the first person/machine combo you tell MS about.

Even then the OEM price for XP-Pro is greater than the single user price for Tiger.
