  3. And it's never 'just Windows'.
    Antivirus, Steam client. CCC, a host of other stuff.

    Measure it in your system. Open Task Manager and look at Processes.
  4. Win 7 x86 doesn't leave you with much ram left for gaming. in all honesty stick with Win 7 x64 that way you can always add more ram later on to enhance your gaming experience.
  5. On a shoestring budget but alright
  6. Win 7 x64 is $55 locally where I am.
