Hello Fluxx. Welcome to sevenforums. I'll point you to these two threads-

- http://www.sevenforums.com/general-d...omparison.html
- Windows 7 Game Compatibility List

This should help you make an informed decision as well as help answer some questions you have.

Please be aware that Windows 7 is not XP and there will be some growing pains should you decide to upgrade to 7. Also be aware that not everything you have will be compatible with or play with Windows 7 - that includes a lot of older games. If you have a favorite game you want to play under 7, look through the game compatibility list, and then research it using Google or ask it here.

Good luck
