Windows Vista x64 with my system or...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I have been debating over this fact for a while and I just wanted to see the opinions of the posters here.

My system is listed, I was just wondering if you guys thought that upgrading to vista x64 ultimate would be worth it for me, or if I should just wait for Windows 7 to come out, even though that will be a while.

(right now I have windows xp media center) :-\\

So you're running 32bit Vista right now?


On the side: I notice you're from Wisconsin. Where in WI are you from?

There is no need to pay extra for the Ultimate version of Vista, Home premium will have all the features that you'll need.
post #7 of 8
home premium is alot less money, just go for home premium x64 with SP1, its $80 LESS
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16832116488 $100

unless you just have $80 to burn, then go for it

I want to get ultimate though, and I guess I am willing to spend the extra money on it.

Edit: I just ordered off of newegg

Windows Vista Ultimate, New Western Digital Caviar 160 GB 3.0 GB/S, and a new power strip. Lots of storms lately can't be to careful!
