Windows 7 is great but I would recommend keeping a dual boot with Windows XP if you want to get the best out of your hardware with every game. Most games run just as well or even slightly better on Windows 7. However a few run faster and smoother on XP. And multiplayer games requiring Punkbuster are not working online with Windows 7 last time I heard.

yeah id love to do a dual boot...thing is only thing i DIDNT upgrade was my HDD lol so its still quite ****tyish :P so partitioning is not really that good of an idea no?

well im pretty sure with wat ive gathered that ill get a performance boost if i go for win7 only problem is...i wanna know if the 64 bit is compatible with games made for 32 bit systems.
The fact that im not using my full RAM potential does suck but if i cant play the games then im not gonna use any RAM at all :P

the challenge seeking dumass that i am, i'm probably goin for the 64 bit....if it doesnt work ill rereformat :P
and i will deff post my feedback just in case there is some other CnC hungry person who doesnt know wat to do :P

Didn't read everything, but in case it hasn't been suggested, build 7127 is reported by some to have better compatibility with certain games. I recommend to install that build, currently.

If your a gamer 7127, otherwise get the RC7100 from Microsoft.

Yes, it seems MS is going for greater game compatibility with 7127, I've heard only positive reports about that build so far, especially game-wise.

ok so....i got 7100...without even knowin lol....would it be a hassel to stay changing it to 7127??? or could i just find some kind of update??

and where can i find it from?

i installed the 7100 but havent played any games yet had a lot of work to do...but as far as the OS goes so far....WOW:P
the speed of it is incredible...my old XP seemed to have been holdin my pc back :P but i am very impressed.

Its like they got vista and injected it with steroids, adrenaline and every other thing that would boost efficiency :P

you guys got me hooked :P downloadin the 7127 build now...but 1 question should i do another clean install?? or i can just upgrade from there???

Before i thought i did a clean install but it still put all my files in a windows.old folder which i then deleted to make sure i get the full potential. does it always do that??? or to get a pure clean install i have to do something else??

since i only installed my virus scanner and mozilla its not much of a hassel for me to do another clean install...
