Windows 7: New Build...what do you think?

26 Aug 2011   #11

Windows 7 Professional 64bit

It's funny, ram is so cheap nowadays you buy 8 or 12GB, but you have no idea what, or if, you can take advantage of it.

Personally, I like to play with new software, so I give 2GB out of my 8GB to a virtual machine to test them.

Even worse, once you buy a ssd, win7 is supposed to disable superfetch, so more ram is going to waste.

I tried to keep it cheap actually. I got the GPU, PSU, and case from my dad (he builds computers too) which saved me a lot of money. I bought everything else, and it cost me (in total) $520.

I have the 1090T. I was considering the 1100T first, but I wanted a better motherboard so I had to go with the 1090T. Either way they are excellent CPUs!:)

Windows 8 Release Preview x64

Yeah, I've got to say, my Phenom 1100T and ATI 5870 graphics combo (with an ASUS motherboard) is by far the most stable setup I've had in a long time. I have a lot of games in my collection, and I can't remember the last time I had driver issues or anything like that.

I really want the Radeon 7000 series to come out so that the price drops on the 6970 -- I'd like to upgrade to one of those.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
