I dont understand

Ok im building my own computer. I have all the hardware but i dont have an OS. Now im a windows xp guy but i want to go to windows 7 because im a hardcore gamer and i want full use of direct x 10-11 and xp pro can only support 4gb ram and ima going to be running 8gigs of ram. anyways im like totally blind on what version of windows 7 to get. windows 7 home premium upgrade says i need windows xp installed first....i dont wanna have to install xp then 7 bacuse thats just ridiculous. I really dont wanna spend 200 flippin buck on the windows 7 home premium full...somthing that im missing here? and sorry iv never really messed with windows 7 at all so im not educated in this field yet.. also any version of win 7 will support 8gb ram right or is it dumb like xp and you have to have pro version?

  4. You do understand the OEM version includes no support, and you can only install it on 1 PC. If you ever upgrade to a new PC again, this install disc will be worthless.
