This OEM sells for like $85.00. What's the difference between it and the retail box? It sounds like it's an original version.

I want to know if it will work with Bootcamp before putting out the money- i can't really afford $199 right now for the retail box.

Yes, it will work with Bootcamp. (As long as it's the full version, of course)

I bought mine off of Newegg for like $89 or something.

The only difference I could tell was the packaging - it comes in a plain white paper CD envelope with the CD key stuck to the envelope. No box, no paperwork, nada.

Yeah, I got mine from Newegg for 90 bucks or so, just for my games.

Sitting, waiting, wishing...
