Buying Vista Premium x64
Apr 20, 2008, 7:08 PM
I've got an XP system I built about 6 months ago or so. I want to utilize DX10 with my 8800gtx so now I need to upgrade Windows.
I see a lot of people here pushing to go to 64bit version of Vista. If I decide to go that route, how can I buy it? I only see builder versions at Newegg.

Buy the builder version. Saves you alot of cash but microsoft wont give you free tech support, or a pretty box. Thats the only difference.
Vista upgrade tied to one XP
Vista 64-bit or 32-bit
Vista home premium to Windows 7 ultimate
System shows 64 bit on Windows 7 Pro and 32 bit on Vista after upgrade. What do
Windows Vista Academic Version

With buying the builder version, I cannot put it on another PC if I upgrade, correct?
And also, my PC already has XP on it. Am I going to run into issues putting the builder version (intended for new pcs) on a system that has already been in use?

Thers always ways to use it on more then one PC. MS is picky about both versions. They want there money.
You can format and do a new install of either one. Stay away from upgrade disks. Get full version either way.
Send me a PM if you want to know how to get it dirt cheap.
