You don't have to buy it -- if you have a supported GPU and latest drivers, you already have it. It is support by WMP. The only thing you can buy is NVIDIA PureVideo decoder -- but you don't need to buy it to take advantage of PureVideo technology.
Now, the only part i'm not familiar with is how can we tell weather or not WMP is taking advantage of PureVideo when playing H264 content. Btw, I have Win 7 RC - playing a 1080p mkv using WMP took very little CPU, whereas playing the same file using Media Player Classic (from the CCCP pack) was using more then 50% of my CPU (Core 2 Duo 3Ghz).
