Upgrading from 7077, which build to install?

Hey guys,

I've used Win7 as my main OS since I installed 7077 but I figure now's time to upgrade to a newer build. I have 7127, 7201 and 7229 all 64 bit editions. Couple questions. Should I download 7137? Is it worth it? Which build of the following three listed above would you choose? My specs are

Dell Studio 1735
4GB Ram
Core 2 Duo T5750 2.00GHz
Intel 965GM Graphics
IDT High Def Audio

Replies are gratefully appreciated!

I have tried 7229 but I went back to 7127 as I had problems with Punkbuster in build 7229 and there were no noticeable differences between them anyway.

How does 7201 compare to 7127?

I didn't try 7201, but I think you should be happy with 7127.

i tried both and found them both to be quite well, but then again i didn't really use PunkBuster on 7201 so I would say stick with 7127, but don't even touch 7137. 7137 by far was the worst build for me. i am currently on 7231 and haven't touched 7229 but now won't.

Agreed. I wish I'd stayed with 7127. 7137 didn't go well for me at all.
Now I'm on 7229 but I can't honestly say I prefer it to 7127 and if I hit any problems I'll do a fresh install of 7127.

cheers, john

Just a last note on this topic, which ever build I decide to install will be the last build I install before I install the RTM version. It seems its a battle between 7127 and 7201. I have both builds so its just a choice of which to install. A lot of users say 7127 is better, if I could get 1 or 2 more replies just to clarify that I'll be set. Thanks

Fresh install, build 7077 is super slow -_-
So, fresh install and build 7077 is super slow. I mean it shouldn't be this slow at least I don't think so. It always takes 10-15 seconds to open up menus and things and the CPU is constantly at 30-50% load and RAM always at 25% according to the cpu/ram % gadget. Any ideas?

Should I install Build 7077 or 7000?
So, I've been using Build 7000 but went back to Vista x64 because my surround sound didn't work. You think the 7077 build will fix that? It's the onboard 5.1 surround sound (asus board). Also, should I wait for the official RC or just suck it up and deal with the surround sound issue in 7000 or...
