I think bigmck AND mjf AND ignatzatsonic AND linnemeyerhere have convinced me that a new build is going to be the most stable and clean. (I'm thick headed sometimes, appreciate the consistent feedback.) I can do that, just takes time. Bummer.....was looking for a good acceptable shortcut.

Well, that makes the issue a simpler question, do I go with Win 7 or Win 8?

Thank you for your help. Oh, also will be going with the Samsung SSD.

Good choice on Samsung.

Are you being serious or sarcastic with the Win 7/8 choice??

There are numerous threads on Win 8 in the news section. Few are amused.

I'd certainly say nix to Win 8 UNLESS you have already given it a test flight. It is grossly different than 7 in an important way----which may or may not cause you to tear out your remaining hair.

Getting a new build up with Win 7 64 will be enough of a challenge for me, thx.
