    I'd go with Home Premium. Here's a promo code for $10 off MCMLNN23.

    Technically you can clean install from the upgrade version.

    would it be a lot easier to just get the full version?

    Well, compare the versions yourself and decide which features you need.

    Any of the versions will work. If it's a Windows disc that is either XP, Vista, or 7, it'll work.
