It depends. If the retailer just ripped you off, OEM could be that much. Plus prices fluctuates. Where did you buy it?

US vs UK prices on software is no where near the same. You can get it for $100 on the egg. Newegg.com - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - Operating Systems

That's OEM, though.

I got it at Best Buy? How can I tell if its OEM or Retail? Is Retail something that is given to places such as companies that need multiple copies?
