Windows 7 Build 7100 - Where to now

I was running Vista Home Premium and upgraded to Windows 7 evaluation and am now on build 7100. Now with the official release just around the corner I was wondering what do I do now. What version of Win 7 should I now purchase and will I be able to upgrade my current installation or will I have to format and start on a complete clean install

Clean install is recommended. Just backup your data first.
You can install any version you want.

It's not so bad. I reinstall my OS at least twice a year...

It is just the time it take to get it all back to what it was but yes I also seems to have to do a fresh install every now and then especially using Win XP
