Here's my 1st, from a poll to decide which graphics card was superior 2 years ago:-

nVidia GT 220 or 9500 GT?

We have current generation consoles to thank for this predicament, but as a result being a PC gamer no longer means having to upgrade that graphics card every year to enjoy the latest. Heck, owners of 8800 class cards most probably had the best lifetime for their cards ever.. made in 2006 and still capable of running the latest games with decent settings without performance issues... With only 2 -3 odd games requiring DX11.. DX10 cards are still a good buy...

First reply was from Jonathan_King.

Windows 7 64bit or 32bit on old Laptop I am new to this forum and looking for some opinions. I recently built a new desktop and installed Win 7 64bit and it was a walk in the park. So now I am going to upgrade the wife's laptop. It is a HP Pavilion zv6270us. It has a Athlon 64 3500+ at 2.0GHz with 2GB DDR PC2700 Cl 2.5 333mhz memory. I dual booted Win 7 RC 64bit to test and had a few driver problems since HP won't support this unit for Win 7. I was able to use some Vista drivers with a hack to get the sound working. Only thing not working is the Fax Modem which I never use. We use the laptop for E-Mail, Web browsing and wife is addicted to "Bejeweled 2" which runs fine under Win 7 64.
I was thinking of installing Win 7 32bit and wondering if 64bit was worth the effort as far as bootup time and performance. I was thinking 32bit might have better drivers and might even perform better.
All opinions welcome and thanks in advance.

Aug. 24th 2010, Dual Boot Tutorial- #857 Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP

I was thanking Sean for his great tutorial. Another web site had totally left out Step #7. For some reason their tutorial wouldn't work.

Sean's worked.


My first attempt at this.
I found a different web page to start the process.
I didn't know this was even here.
Everything was fine until I reached your Method 2- Step 7.
The other site forgot to include this so Easy BCD won't open.
After a few choice words and the mandatory Google search I thankfully found your article.
Read it from end to end found the errors of my way Method2- Step 7 and it WORKED!!!!!!!!!!!

We now have dual bootage.
Thanks a million
