1.Windows 7 RC 32Bit
2.Windows 7 RC 64Bit
3.WIN XP 64Bit
the 64 bit windows will recognize the 4 GB og ram but XP will not use the dual core while Windows 7 64 as i heard is very unstable and have limited time like as Windows 7 32 but on the other hand they both use the dual core
can anyone advise me which one to choose?
Your computer has the cpu, ram, and video to run win 7. If there isn't a reason for running XP forget about it. Now 32 or 64? Both have pro's and con's.
32-- only about 3.3 gigs of ram. easier to obtain drivers
, runs cooler. Its not as fast as 64 for some things.
To make your choice we would need to know how you use it. Do you game, do video editing, run bleeding edge apps.
tell us how you use your system and we could be more helpful
