Is anyone planning a Launch Party?
I'll go and get Risk!
Same as the RTM. 7600. RTM = release to manufacture. The same one you will see on those boxes, on branded computers, etc. Anything added on to it that was not included on the ones available from MSDN etc, can be downloaded from windows update.
What Microsoft wants you to believe:
The fact that you need a "special version of Windows" just to run a dual-socket system is ridiculous. What's so hard about running a dual-socket system that Microsoft feels the need to make you pay more for it?
Don't all free OS's run dual-socket systems just fine?
Oh, wait -- this is extortion, right? :shadedshu
This thread is great.
"Wow, my PC can be simpler?"
"Let's buy some Doritos and have a DORK party!"
"Ok, I'll bring the drivers."
i never tried win7 but im sure it rocks.
i have too much stuff on my current xp and im too lazy to back up and format
im building a new rig next month anyway.
ok so it does have DX11 inside. , but is there also a virtual Win XP
or it comes alone as a program for win7 .????
I have to admit it I love that my school, Kaplan University, has the IT department hooked up with the MSDNAA site. I got a free copy of Win 7 Pro x64 and I think it said I can install this on up to 5 computers, which is awesome. Sure beats my Win 7 Home Premium upgrade I got for 49.99 from Newegg back in July,.
From what I found, it's Home Premium and up.
Windows 7 Product Editions: A Comparison
See chart #4, "Performance features".
So, in about 3 years when we're needing 32GB of RAM (because DDR3 RAM will be cheap and plentiful by then), Windows 7 Home Premium will be useless.
and thats why i got a pro and an ultimate (192GB sounds ok)
