Windows 8 Core X64

Go with the X64 version, it's excellent. I've had no hardware problems other than not being able to use my scanner because there is no Vista or Win 7 driver for it. Since you are already running Vista X64, the move to Win 7 X64 should be relatively painless.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

As long as your hardware has 64-bit driver support, it's very stable. And since you already run 64-bit...your hardware must have driver support.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

by the make it less painless... even though it takes longer to put all the pieces back together... do a clean install instead of upgrade.

Acurasd: i i was think the same thing, plus i am getting a bigger hard drive for C:/ i had an 80gig for vista - and with all the updates/ virus protection/ i almost ran out of space... so i am getting a 250 just for 7 to sit on..

when i install i will disconnect with other 2 hard drives - just so i know i wont accidently touch those with the install process.
