Specs: Windows 10, I5
Hello, I used to build my own desktops over a decade ago and the prices were pretty high. I use a laptop now and the HD died. I looked up a Kingston 128GB SSD drive and its only around $55 bucks wow that's cheap. Then I see Windows 10 for only $100? I remeber when Windows discs were at least $250. So I just need an SSD drive with a Windows CD and it will install and I am ready to go once I install my programs? Just making sure nothing has changed causing me to spend more money thanks.

If you still have the license key from the previous OS, install the OS again and upgrade free to windows 10.

Yes as sluc said, you have option to upgrade to windows 10 from windows 8.1 or windows 7 upto July 29,2016 for free. If you have windows 7 cd with product key you should upgrade it freely to windows 10 with free of charge also you can revert back to windows 7 within 30 days if you don't like win 10. But what i heard is that most of the persons felt issues with win 10, i suggest you to go through the reviews and then upgrade to win 10.

Or, if your laptop had Win10 on it before the drive died, you can probably get away with your new SSD, the Win10 media creator, and a USB stick large enough to hold a DVD ISO.

you can revert back to windows 7 within 30 days if you don't like win 10 - with a caveat - DO NOT RUN Disk Cleanup any time before the first 30 days. If you do the Disk Cleanup will remove the Windows-old folder you will need for the rollback operation.
