Default vista upgrade

I bought XP Media Center Edition-OEM with my new home-built rig and on the upgrade certificate it keeps saying that its for PCs preloaded with XP. It also asks for a receipt of XP. I bought XP on newegg and the only "receipt" I have is in my e-mail. Is this good enough?

I guess my main question is, will I be allowed to get vista because I home built my computer and XP did not come preloaded?

Your Newegg e-mail reciept will be good enough. You should be able to get Vista. How MS gets it to you is beyond me. They don't want to pay for YOUR shipping, that's for sure.
