Hi all i am an Windows Xp profesional home user and want to do an OS Change to Windows home premium 64 -bits Edition , and i could use some advice on how to proceed with this , to be honest my Pc " Know how " is limited to average at best
I,ve read , and bin told anlot that Windows 7 is more secure on system security , is more stable and apparently performance is above that of Windows xp .
i,d like to use the 64 -bits Version because this offers the use of more System RAM and thus more performance i reckon , but i am hesitant aswell because i,m not sure if it would be compatible with anlot of programs used these days ,
What are the most important things i should be aware off ? ...is basicly my question
i have checked all my system hardware and they should be compatible with Windows 7 Pro 64 -bits
this is my hardware :
-Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 / 2.83 GHz ( 1333 MHz ) - LGA775 Socket - L2 12 MB
-OCZ Gold Dual Channel Kit - memory - 4 GB : 2 x 2 GB - DIMM 240-pins - DDR2 - 1066 MHz / PC2-8500 - CL5 - 2.1 V
-Samsung SpinPoint F1 Desktop Class HD502IJ - 500 GB - intern - 3.5" - SATA-300 - 7200 tpm -buffer: 16 MB , 2 HD,s
-corsair Professional Series HX750W - PSU - ATX12V 2.3/ EPS12V 2.91 - 120-240 V
- Asus P5Q deluxe -p45 Chipset with DDR2 motherboard
-Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Pro Series - soundcard - 24-bits - 192 kHz - 109 dB SNR
i Bought it all recently and it,s running well in my Windows Xp pro setup
Could i use for example the exact same Memory Module wich i use for this and Add it in windows 7 , 64 Bit ? so that will make up for 8 Gig RAM
and for the users of 64 bit windows 7 how do you expirience this OS , what is your opinion on it ?
Some replies would be greatly appreciated
