I'm using W7 its awesome, I haven't had a problem with any game yet in fact all my games are working a lot better.

Cara get Windows 7, you can set compatibility mode for each individual game or program and you also have the option of Downloading XP mode for Windows 7 from the microsoft website.

Cara,

as far as i know, if you need the XP mode, you have to buy the professional or ultimate version.

Do you guys have the 32 or 64 bit version?? I think i would buy the 64 bit version, or is there anything speaking against it?

up to 4 GB RAM - 32 bit version
from 5 GB RAM - 64 Bit or you couldnt use the RAM

32 Bit version with 4 GB RAM, games are most of the time faster.

"While the maximum RAM limit for 32-bit Windows 7 editions is 4GB, when it comes to the 64-bit editions, the amount of memory that the OS can address depends on which edition you are running.

Here are the upper RAM limits for the different editions of Windows 7:

Starter: 8GB
Home Basic: 8GB
Home Premium: 16GB
Professional: 192GB
Enterprise: 192GB
Ultimate: 192GB"

I use Windows XP Professional 64-bit with 8 GB of RAM. Excellent performance.

I'm planning to upgrade my system to 64-bit, so when that is done, I'm surely saying goodbye to Vista and hello to W7

Unless you use PAE, it's closer to 3.5GB max that you'll actually get out of 32-bit systems.

The RAM "Limits" in Windows 7 are business choices for the sales rather then a 64-bit specific thing. Hacks to control how much you can use without paying more aside, Windows 7 can address more RAM then you can install on any desktop machine.

Everyone I have talked to is convinced that Windows 7 is better than their previous Windows, be it XP or Vista. One of them is a real geek of whom I always thought he'd only use Linux. Maybe in the near future, I'll get it myself.

This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

Woo such a thread.

I will start with my situation. I run XP64 with 8gb RAM..therefore 32 bit would only recognise just over 3gb. However many of my favourite games will not run in XP64..Rvs and GR are examples.

I have installed windows 7 64-bit Ultimate..as an OS i actually think its quite good..it does support Rvs,Swat4 and Ghost Recon. It runs a lot quicker than XP64. I was concerned that it would be zapping more resources than are needed just to (lets face it) create quick links to our favourite programs or games.
My only gripe with 7 is that it seems to have a great problem with DHCP.
Now lets gather some perspective.. When XP was released, it took years, and a couple of SP's to get users happy with even 50% of what it did. With 7, millions are saying its good..immediatly.

My opinion.........Its good..but dont expect 100% success immediatly
