    It's an OS I had available and it's 64 bit (64 bit OS's given an extra 10% in points per day (ppd))... that being said, I wish I had an extra Windows 7 license :eek:

    Norton Heres the Irony, for the AF where I worked at, they had Athlon II X2 CPUs 4GB Ram etc with Win Vista Enterprise- Well ontop of the Vista services there are AF services, Talk about a major slow down on performance. Well the AF Changed to Win 7 Enterprise- Talk about a major difference in Speed, those machines are faster than they ever were.

    Thats why I asked why You put Vista on, but ya it sux u cant get a license for trading that Vista disk for a 7 disk

    I prefer XP over Vista.... most people do but the 10% is too tempting to not try. Will eventually find a valid Win7 license for it.

    Vista sucks :p

    I know I've mentioned this before, so apologies, but if you get a std Technet subscription ($150/yr) you can use any MS OS you want and you will get multiple keys for most of them. Plus, from what I've heard, the activation codes continue to work even if you let your subscription expire - but I'm not absolutely positive about that. Just make sure that you've recorded all of the codes since you won't be able to get into your account once it has lapsed for more than a few weeks to a month. I had that problem last year.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I have one also but the fricken thing don't like it. My Linux box and win xp system use it quiet well. I'm just going to pick up a cable tomorrow and run it straight into the router since this cruncher will be replacing me wifes Athlon xp machine. Just happens she is set up diagonally across the room from the router. I have the router sitting on my desk with my main 2 rigs. My Linux box is at the other end of the house in my bedroom ( it makes a great night light for the baby) and it's using the usb adapter.

    I saw them- Thanks :toast:

    Unfortunately I'm running low on funds.... going to keep my eye out for 6870's which I will be looking for when I have some $$$ to spend in a couple of month's. May pick up a 7870 for my main rig and move the 6870 over to the cruncher
