I have burnt a Windows 7 .iso to a disc and I was wondering if anyone else with a burnt/real copy do you have a choice of installing Starter, Business, Professional or Ultimate.???
I thought this was just me, I was like why would they just give you the other of the OS for free. They didn't do that with XP.
And, I installed Windows 7 starter as I only have 448mg of ram and I currently run Linux. But anyways, I'm buying a new computer it costs 439$ here are the specs.
320gig Sata harddrive.
3gig of ram - 4 total slots, 3 used, 1 free.
No monitor - I have one no need to buy another one.
A intel processor - Forgot which one.
That's about basically the importants of it.
I was going to buy this temporarly until I get a job in april but I wanted to know with 3gig of ram which OS should I use. I could use the one that requires 3gigs of ram(Professional) and I have a question about that. When you use a OS shouldn't you have some free ram or should you max it out???
See if I install starter(Crappy) then I would have 2gig of FREE ram but if I install Business(I might just install it - I'll give a reason why.) I would have 1 gig of ram..
Now, the reason why I would most likely use business and the reason why I don't want to.
Need to reasons: I am a Website Developer, I often multi-task and need a few windows open, Like maybe 3 firefox's 2 ftp programs and a msn messenger.
Now the reasons I don't want to: Someone told me this wasn't a multi-tasking one, That it was for a bit of photo's and business like stuff.
Now, I do know that Ultimate 32bit requires 4gig of ram, Could I run it decently on 3.???
And when I get that new computer in april it has the following specs which I will run Windows Ultimate 64bit. - Which is good for what I need it to do.
320gig Sata harddrive
10gigs of ram - 10 total used, 12 slots, 2 free. - Will add the extra 2 probably buy them seperate.
Processor: Intel I7 Core
No monitor. - No need once again. I got a 17inch HP.
USB 2.0 slots - 8
That is the major specs of it
Now, here are the links to the two computers I was talking about.
PC:1 - Top one. Systemax Build-To-Order Desktop PC based on the Intel® G31 Chipset, Optional Windows XP Professional, Choice of Many Options and Upgrades - Limited Quantity at TigerDirect.com
^^ - I beefed it up to $449.00 - < That has tax added so it was originally $419.00
PC:2 - Bottom one. iBUYPOWER Gamer Chimera LX3 Desktop PC - Intel Core i7 920 2.66MHz, 12GB DDR3, 1TB SATA II, 896MB Dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX275, DVDRW, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit at TigerDirect.com
Or this one iBUYPOWER Gamer Battle Gear X3 - Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR3, 750GB HDD, DVDRW, GeForce 9600GT, Vista Home Premium 64-bit at TigerDirect.com
I prefer the top one, It's better and it has a better skin on it.
I don't like that game on the side of that other computer, I played it and didn't like it.
Note: I will be spending 50$ to get a custom logo to go on the side of all the computers I get.
Now here is the computer I plan on buying say within the next 2-3 years. MAINGEAR F1X 750 Gaming PC - Intel Core i7 975 Extreme 3.33GHz (Overclocked to 3.66GHz), 12GB DDR3, 1.58TB Total Storage, BD Burner/DVDRW, Dual 1GB AMD ATI Radeon HD 5870, Windows 7 Pro 64-bit at TigerDirect.com
