well I would imagine if my key works and it activates legally then its legit, I'm just downloading from another source as MS pulled their download, now activating an RTM (which I'm not wanting to do as looking and asking for an RC copy that they give free anyway)

Not all torrents illegal you know lol, yes it has bad rep but so does everything

highest 32 bit you can use your key on is 7260. Even that isnt rtm. RTM=7600 and no keys are yet avail.

Unless they are obtained from legitimate sources like MSDN etc... Those have legitimate keys...

My pleasure. If you do plan to upgrade the 7600 can be re-armed for 120 days use.

Current, most stable build of Windows 7, is?
I'm asking as I'm going to install it on my PC. I tried Windows XP Professional 64-bit but it seems it's not entirely compatible with my Core i7 system, and I know Vista is slower than Windows 7, so I'm wondering currently which is the best build of Windows 7 to use. Thanks.
