With the RTM though, I will only have 120 days to use it via re-arming, correct?
thats correct 4 months all together.

If I do use Windows 7, should I use the RC or download an RTM?
The RC was made public by MS directly there over any leaked evaluation copies provided to software developers since often some won't install or run on them. I'll simply be running the RCs here until 7 is out to avoid running into problems like that or someone stuffing a bug or two into something.

Well I went with the RC, and I currently have Section 8, COD:WAW, and L4D working just fine. My gpu temps are about 8 degrees higher, I imagine this is due to transparency and other visual fx I had disabled in Vista. It's alright since I just jack up my fans a little more when I game, and it all evens out.

Thanks for the comments guys! Now to look up threads on optimizing windows 7..
