i believe from what i have read that the actual final is much smaller than 300meg?

It will be smaller if it comes via updates.

It's the full version from download sites which includes patches you will already have.

I posted the MajorGeeks link yesterday:

It's just over 316MB in size and is the final version.

If you allow the download from MS updates ( as anskyber says) , the size will be determined by what MS updates you already have on your pc. Should be a lot smaller in size than the whole 300+ mb file, so as johnnyrocker says, best to wait.

If you have been keeping your updates ...up to date..it is generally reckoned that the SP3 download via MS updates will be around 65Mb.

However, by putting the full 316MB onto a CD-R, it can be used to update other systems owned by family and friends...:-)

Apologies, I didn't see that.
