Not really knowing anything about Win 7, I'm curious if it's a 64-bit OS, or if there are 32- and 64-bit versions. Basically I'd like to build a new system that can take advantage of higher memory capacities like 6- or 8-gigs of ram in programs like the Adobe CS4 suite and whatnot.
So can I use any version of Win 7 to do this, or do I need some special version? Thanks.
If you buy a retail copy of Windows 7 you will recieve DVDs of both 32- and 64-bit versions. You can only install and activate one, so the choice is yours to make. It sounds like you will want to install the 64-bit version to access more than 4GB of RAM.
Thanks for your replies. I guess I may be in a bind with certain hardware I have the won't get 64-bit drivers, for they're discontinued (but perfectly functional for me) I suppose I'll have to make a dual-boot system.
