Anyone have good deals on the retail version? I change my motherboard pretty much annually which means OEM is a pain.

It's not quite the same. If you buy a retail copy, when you junk computer A, you can install your OS onto computer B.

With an OEM copy, the OS is supposed to stay with the PC. If you junk it, you need to buy a new OS to go with the new computer.
#3
If you buy an OEM copy and install it on your PC it will stay with that PC forever. Even if you buy an better PC later and uninstall the original Vista installation, the EULA forbids you moving the OEM licensed installation to another PC

For clarity so you know what your buying and what restrictions it has read this

Yes, you can't just simply uninstall OEM from one PC and move it to another, but if you're 'upgrading' your current PC then you just call up Miscrosoft and say that the motherboard (and/or possibly other components) were damaged and you had to replace. They then reissue you with an activation code for your OEM version and you can use it on the 'upgraded' system. Have a look at various forums and you'll see people haven't had a problem with this process. Sure, it's a bit more hassle than doing a simple online activation, but it does work from what I've read.

Nice comment bjm. The deal isn't all that though. I'd rather have premium to be honest - ultimate has little beneficial differences.
