Office Upgrade 2007 to 2010 64bit

I am currently running Office 2007 on my 64 bit WIN 7 OS.  It was on my 32 bit Vista system before I went to Win7, 64bit and seems to be runing ok; but I want to upgrade to 2010.  

I went to Amazon to find an upgrade and was confused by the two options listed in the attachment.

Also, do I have to specify 64 bit?  Can I upgrade at a cheaper, "upgrade" price, or do I have to purchase New; since it's whole version number upgrade?

You get the license for both 32 and 64 bit versions of office with 2010. The two options you have shown are

A full media retail version with 3 licenses and DVD
A single license product key card version designed for licensing downloaded and trial versions

You don't have to specify 64 bit. Those ones are good for 64 bit systems.

The differences between those two are that the first one on the left it can be installed on 3 computers and the one on the right side just on 1 computer

amit.. answer poses the following question.
                          btw how do I ref a comment ID?

Why does Office 2010; that includes XL, cost $127.47 while XL 2010 alone cost $139.95?
Gary CaseRetiredCommented:
Microsoft pricing can indeed be curious sometimes (as can other makers as well).

Why anyone would buy only Excel when you can get the whole Office package for less is an interesting question -- but I suspect some folks do.    Perhaps they're running an older version of Office with many custom macros that won't work in the newer versions of Word, but want the new version of Excel.    etc.      But I doubt there are many standalone versions of Excel sold.

Clearly the best value -- if you don't need Outlook, Access & Publisher -- is the Home & Student 3-pack.

Great help! Now I know exactly what to buy and where to get the best price!
