Windows 7, yes or no?

Hello my fellow gamers and computer freaks,
I need recommendation for Windows 7.I am currently using Windows XP (32bit edition).My hardware is :
Phenom II x4 955 BE - overclocked to 3.8 GHz
Gigabyte GA-770T-USB3
4GB Kingston DDR3 in dualchannel (1666 MHz)
Asus EAH5750 Formula
WD 320GB HDD
...
So my question is: should I upgrade to Windows 7.
I need computer mostly for gaming.
If you say I should upgrade to Windows 7 please tell me exactly which version of it should I take (Home,Pro,Ultimate) and 32 or 64 bit.
Thanks in advance,
bl4ckb3rry

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit Steve Ballmer Signature Edition
 
 

HELL YES UPGRADE! YOU WONT REGRET IT!

I'd get Pro 64... that way you can connect to a domain (if ever needed) Home cant. Also, there arent many reasons to go to Ultimate... multiple languages and bitlocker.

You might do better to ask on the forums for the games you play. You could also run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor and see what it has to say.

Here, almost everyone will say go for it! I personally love Windows 7 but I'm not a gamer.

By all means run the advisor that ZTrucker has linked to.

Naturally, you can't upgrade from Win XP to Windows 7, you will need to do a "clean" install.

Yes. I would go with Win 7 Home Premium 64bit.

By all means. You're not even getting the most out of your hardware running XP x86.

Don't bother with OEM version!

Get Win 7 full version retail box (not upgrade) with 64bit + 32bit DVD's to choose from, plus you can transfer it to other computers or flog it on - you can't (legally) with an O.E.M licence!

Amazon in UK sell Win 7 Ultimate Full (version) retail box 150.00(ish) inc post!

Why pay for the Full version when he has XP and can use the Upgrade version and save some bucks?
