Question Cheap XP?

Okay so I bought Vista with much regret. Anyways I have alot of PC games that won't run under Vista or under Vista XP compatability emulation. Whatever its called. Sorry not at that PC at the time. So I am basically going to run a 2 OS system. Anyone know of anywhere to get XP for cheap? won't be my main OS, basically just to run any of the games that are having problems. Kind of going to be an expensive workaround. But oh well. any suggestions? I have Xp on other PC's but they are the one's I had received with my Dell Pc's.

Thanks Peter. Yeah I looked at newegg since I do most of my shopping their anyways. But that OEM copy might pose a problem if I do any hardware swaps, since I have been Oc'ing a bit lately. Any other suggestions? Or reccomendations?
