I want to know if its possible to Partition some of my C: (With windows xp 32 bit on it, about 80 GB free) and have Windows 7 64 Bit Ultimate installed on the partition for some sort of dual boot. I want to use windows 7...or to test it really with new games and stuff for some functions(like bitstreaming through my Onboard sound or being able to use my full 4GB of ram) but I dont have the money to do a full New PC upgrade right now... Is this possible by any means or methods? And if it's possible...is it even advisable? Thanks!

Not many downsides that I can think of, it's mostly a painless process. The real pain, as I mentioned, is getting rid of XP for good. It's easy if you format and start from scratch, but if you want to lose XP AND keep your W7 installation, it requires a bit of work.
