This doesn't sound like a clean install to me.

Yes, you can do a clean install with the upgrade disc...

True. But if he installed Vista first and then Win 7 over it he did another upgrade instead of a clean install.

How? I tried to do so on a brand new HDD last night and the key would not work (told me that it was invalid)

I would rather be running 7 as a clean install on a clean HDD so that my games perform to the best of their ability, since I bought this new rig so that I could play my games on high settings.

Also- is there a reason that my system uses almost 100% of my RAM when I run World of Warcraft?

Specs:

Windows 7 Home Premium
Processor: Intel Core i5 CPU 750@ 2.67GHz 2.67GHZ
Ram: 4g (1.49 usable)
System Type: 32 bit
Vid cards: nVidia 260 and 9600

Yes, it is definitely advisable to do a clean install rather than an upgrade.
I understand this, but what if it doesn't fix it? I appreciate your help but I'd rather a 100% definite YES that I wont have the same problem.

Don't expect a 100% blanket guarantee! Try some things or just live with it--your option.

Set up a dual boot if you can't figure out how to live with a "measly" frame rate of 40FPS in some games in Win 7. LOL!
