Windows 7

Discussion in 'Off Topic' started by Peter Duivelaar, Oct 15, 2010.

  1. I'm planning to buy a new system in the future, so my first question is:

    Which version of Windows 7 should I buy?
    Premium, Professional or Ultimate?
    I only use it for gaming.
  2. doesn't matter, it just have to be 64bit;)
  3. So for gaming it doesn't matter if I choose the cheapest version?

  7. I just got a new system with windows 7 premium 64bit. One thing I would warn about which I didn't realise till I got it home - windows 7 operating system takes up about 36 gigabytes of memory. So I had ordered my machine with a 120 gig SSD (actual 111) and a 500 gig HD as storage. I was really suprised that I only had about 76 gigs left on the OS drive when it showed up....that is windows 7 though. It doesn't matter really because I couldn't afford any bigger Solid State Drive than the 120, and as long as I store most of my stuff on the second drive it will work out. I wouldn't give up the SSD at this point, boot up and shut down take less than 10 seconds. Photoshop starts in about 8 seconds, and all that is really satisfying compared to my old system. I could see myself getting older in the screen while I waited for it all to load. :)
    I am liking 7 though, it has a lot of nice features.

    who cares Premium

    My Win7 X64 Home Premium is 23GB with a clean instal, so it's not so big.
