Good information from the last 2 replies.

Windows 7 system requirements - Microsoft Windows

They both show ass requiring 2GB of ram. When you say Basic 8gig, Home Premium 16-gig, pro/ultimate 192gig.... your talking about HDD space? I checked here

Windows 7 Home Premium Delivers Entertainment & Added Security

and there are no differences of HDD space unless your downloading it online instead of using the CD, even if your using the 64bit version.

Just trying to clarify what you mean. Or do you mean
.8GB ram for Home Basic?
1.6GB for Home Premium?
1.92 GB for Ultimate?

Thanks for your response.

thats not hard drive space it is the available ram win7 will allow usable 16 gigs is the max ram you can use on home premium you want it to reconize more you have to get a high version of win 7 via ultimate or professional
Um, yeah, Solarstarshines, already covered a few pages ago in this thread.

@IaskQuestions: ... what logicearth said. A properly configured router is much better than loading up on unneeded software firewalls. You got one good one, your good. Too many software firewalls soon become nothing more than unneeded annoyances.

+1. A software firewall is really a secondary line of defense. Nothing beats a good NAT router.
