My nvidia gpu (a lowly quadro FX 570m) is better supported under 7 than it was under Vista even with the
"pre-release WDDM 1.1" driver installed by W7, in the sense that it just works better. My 3d gaming performance is significantly improved.

XP MCE .... XP Pro 64 .... W7 U x64
 
 

If I have any serious work to do .. Iím staying with XP as long as I can.
The inability to have Icons on my desktop, Customize my R Click context menus or make new taskbars Ö
Makes W7 a major pain to work in .. When working with Images.

If you havenít been spoiled with these missing XP tools .. Then go for W7

Another 1~5 posts short-time member dislikes Windows 7.

If I dislike a stranger, I won't tell him. I just go away.

3 x 2GB = 6GB
3 x 4GB = 12GB
3 x 8GB = 24GB

I prefer to be told then I can care less about the person doing the telling

It would appear to me that all of the hardware you listed was designed for 64bit. Win 7 is is best 64bit PC OS available.
End of discussion.
