Default Vista OS for sale anywhere cheap?

I am going to build or buy a system pretty soon and I may end up building one so eventually I will need to buy Vista, I'm not sure what the differences are between them like Home Vs. Business Vs. Premium. I mainly use my PC for gaming and some business stuff.

Can someone give me a quick tutorial what the differences?

Most importantly does anyone know where I can buy a cheap copy of Vista, like a OEM software place, I have not bought a OS for a long time so I don't really know the best sites to check, I'm not buying it full price at CompUSA thats for dang sure.

From what I under stand you can't use a copy of Vista like you could XP, not that I use pirated software but my job some times gives us software to test out so we can support the application.
