Sucking up and Giving In

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So, I've posted a few threads recently, and participated in some that have started to make me want to jump into the Vista world.

I'm doing it, so if you're going to bash Vista go post somewhere else.

I'm going to start by Dual - Booting, to see if I like it. So, to get me started I need some advice.

With my System Specs in my Sig, what do you all think:

32 or 64 bit? I do alot of gaming and video editing. I also use ALOT of different software, so I'm wondering how much of that will work in x64.

Home Premium or Ultimate? I'm a bit unfamiliar what comes with which. I don't need super pretty, slow down the computer junk. Just a nice OS.


Anything else? I'm going to upgrade to a Quad Core in a bit too, so I need it to work well with that.

Thanks all.

Might as well go for the 64-bit Vista, either Home Premium or Ultimate. I haven't had any compatibility problems with my x64 Vista, so you should be fine.

Hrmm.. Im wondering about my HDD setup.. I have a 320GB and a 750GB. Right now, I have XP on the 320GB and use the 750 for Storage. I guess I should just create another partition on the 320 for Vista.. like 40GBs?

I Suggest 64-Bit Also as to weather home premium or ultimate? i have both and really didnt notice a difference so i guess the extra features ultimate has i dont use so i might suggest home prem for you, when you install vista first thing you will want to do is Disable UAC so click start type in msconfig then go to tools tab highlight Disable UAC click launch command prompt should appear saying successful and now Reboot!!
