Windows 7: What version should I choose?

10 Sep 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Yes, if you install Windows x64, your computer will melt in a pool of plastic and metal.

Honestly, you wouldn't really notice a difference between the two platforms. I would say you'd be fine with either, and to leave x86 installed for now. However, if you plan to upgrade the memory in this computer soon, switch to x64, so you can just drop the memory in and be using it all right off the bat.

I really hate when that happens. That's why I'm still running DOS!

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and Home Premium x64

Meh... You don't need 64 unless you really want more memory and can afford to make use of the memory. If you are happy with 32 bit and can only afford 2 gigs of Ram, stick with 32 bit. As many have said here, you don't gain much unless you have actual programs that would take advantage of a 64 bit OS and you loaded down with more memory.

But if I install, the 64 bit version it will damaged my pc or something like that?
off,when windows 8 will came out?
An operating system will not damage hardware. But I certainly understand the issue of pricing. If you are not able to afford more memory, then perhaps the 32-bit option is your best choice.

Thanks,you know romanian?
