    I will be installing this tomorrow. Will I have any issues with the SMP or GPU client(s)?

    I had no problem running the 7000 build. The thing I'm curious about is the SMP client working or not. Aside from Folding apps, I've never had an issue with the Win 7 beta's.

    Get the 32bit, I was running Vista 64, but decided to give 7 another shot. And grabbed 7068 when it was only around on 32bit. And I have 0 regrets, it's using 777mb of ram atm and I got a few things open.

    I know it won't support a full 4gb, but you won't cap that, this just doesn't require the 1.5gb to idle like vista.

    I got 2x 1gb cards running on my 32bit right now :p Granted I might wait for the x64 release of this, would like to see if it runs as stable.

    Wicked. I haven't tried anything past 7000 and there were a lot of annoying bugs, and network storage movement was SLOOOOW.

    Yeah, I tried numerous old ones as they all blew. Looked real nice till I opened WMP or something else and just would be all buggy. Then recently I said what the hell and looked what was out there and seen 7022 was the newest.

    I tossed that on my gf's comp and it seems rock solid, I came across one small issue, but thats it. So since that had been great I got 7068 for myself and 0 bugs so far. I have used XP drivers, vista 32 drivers, and win 7 drivers, all worked great. I'm loving this OS! No bugs now runs awesome.

    I can't wait to buy Win 7. You forget how awesome it is when you use another OS for a while. :rockout:

    It appears that the 7077 build could be modified to 7100 and released in May.

    I got the 64bit 7068 build, and after I installed it, anything I DLed though either IE or FF would not save. It would fully DL, the DL box would close(even though I had it set to stay open when DL completed) and it would not be where I set the file to DL to. Anyone else have this problem. I went back to 7000 build because of this.

    BTW, files transfered to me though MSN messenger were fine(that's how I got FF to try)

    7077 is the RC escrow build, was going to download it, I'm running 7068 now. But 7100 (The official RC build) is proabably going to leak in the next few weeks so I'm just going to wait for that.

    Thanks. I think I may wait it out for x64. I have a machine thats perfect for 32bit but thats only cause I have 3gigs and I just dont have another stick of ram :roll:
