Windows 7: Best deals of the day

Just FYI, as I'm sure none of us would make this mistake but saw where an OP had an issue with his RAM capacity. Windows was only seeing half of the 32gig installed. Turns out he had Windows 7 home premium 64-bit; the problem is this version only has a max capacity of 16gig - gigabyte motherboard supports 32G DDR3 computer says only 16G usable

Point? Whether it's memory, or something else, consider the OS for the job you intend the PC to handle.

I bring this up here because I see the deal going on for Home premium. To be honest I never thought about this, but than again I always go for the top tier OS.

Excellent point! However, most people won't need more than 16GB, even for gaming, unless they are doing RAM intensive operations such as heavy duty photo editing and video editing and rendering.

As I stated somewhere else here, we could argue the same about the high end systems we all enjoy so much but rarely use to half their potential. Sure we throw up a few benchmarks, but than what

I know my 32gig of RAM and unlocked 3.5gig processor has hardly broken a sweat. Which is precisely why I haven't even bothered to overclock it

Anyway just be aware of the OS you grab for the task you're doing.

And thanks

Right Drew, I have no need for Ultimate, but I got it for $54 from my local university with a student buying it for me.

It was the only version they sold at the time too.

Well, I may need to buy a few of those OEM Windows 7's because I got my Ultimates and Professionals from my membership in Technet. I don't know what is going to happen now that they are closed. I just hope they don't enforce their current rules.

Wait, what? Technet is closed? Or do you mean the Digital River download site?

No, TechNet is stopping the current program at the end of this year's subscription. They supposedly will still have software, but just a 90 day (I think) trial basis. Look for a PM.
