I have tried to do some searching on here and cant find much, Can I purchase windows 7 somewhere to install on a new computer for running old games? (90's to early 00's RTS games, specifically Age of Empires 2 and Battle for Middle Earth)

I wont be doing anything on this computer except playing those old games, (i.e. it will never see the internet or run any apps or software).

Is there a better way to play those games?

Depending on the game, third party applications such as dgvoodo, wine, nglide and dxWnd. to name a few, can be used to aid in running older titles.
