Seems like the upgrade version of windows 8 is starting to show up on a lot of retailers websites, and the price is set at $70? I could of sworn they said it was going to launch at $40?

Question:

If I plan to do a clean install of W8 onto a new SSD, I can't really use the "upgrade" version and have to purchase the full DVD, or can I?
