Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium OEM

I accidentally posted this on the hardware forum... twice. So please excuse me if it seems that I am spamming... I'm not =P.
So, I'm trying to build my own "rig". I've got all my components down... except for the OS. Now, I'm kinda deterred by the 200 dollar price tag... until I saw that Newegg has a preorder for an OEM version. Now, I'm really excited about this, except... it seems too good to be true. I was under the impression that OEM software usually had mandatory hardware that came along with it. Am I just blind and don't see something, or is that really Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit with no strings attached, just less than the retail copy?
So, could someone clear this up for me?
