I'm going to install W7 64 bits RC that it's good for several months in the new machine.
Then I'll will get an OEM version of W7 when all the bugs are fix.
There is a big difference between XP 32 bits and W7 64 bits and very difficult to use boths OS in the same computer in a practical way.
Even if I have to pay full price for a new fresh install, for $100 more, I think it will be worth it.
After all, good old Bill has to eat too.

Windows 7 64-bit 7600 OEM

the big difference is that with the new technologys and ram increases in size and availablity... You NEED 64bit to RECOGNIZE the RAM & utilize all HyperThreading AMD-V Intel i7 etc...
also i dont thing in the final release that unless your running 64 bit the XP MODE WONT INSTALL & you will need Hardware assisted virtulization ON BOARD.... So some will be FORCED to use 3rd party VirtualPC software AGAIN..... Microsoft is reallly LUCKing out on this Virtualization..... (no 64bit os on vpc2009) Silly!... ALL OTHERS CAN... SOUND CAPEABILITYS REALLY LOW TOO... Simple Fruityloops or Cubase Will not work Correctly in Win7 NEEDS XP cant run in XP MODE. tut tut microsoft.... Even if they dont want to give us the full capabiltys in a virtual pc, they should at least give us full driver power in seamless mode, using the host pc resources, when run in the environment use the virtual pcs resourcse.... THINK MS......CATCH UP.....Hardwaree capabilitys are moving faster than micorsofts IDEALS...
