Upgrading from 7077, which build to install?

Hey guys,

I've used Windows 7 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
