Hi everyone! I'm going to be building a new PC soon, and was wondering if it would be necessary for me to get Windows 7 RTM. I have been using the RC for a few months on my current PC, and since it doesn't expire until March, I'm thinking of just using that on my new build. Would I be able to transfer the RC from my old PC to my new PC? Also, are there any major advantages of the RTM version? (Is is faster?, More Optimized?)
All the bug fixes from the RC to the RTM will obviously be included. Either way, you'll still have to buy it at some point... so it's up to you if you want to buy it now or wait until the RC expires.
+1. Personally, I would buy it now if you can afford to, so you don't have to worry about it later. You still have 3 months before it will start rebooting every 2 hours automatically, and 6 months before it stops working completely.
well what I meant by not getting the 5870 is that it's $100 more than the 5850 (the other GPU I was thinking of getting), and Win 7 Home Premium OEM is $104.99. So they're about the same price. Anyway, I've pretty much decided what I'm going to do, so this thread can be closed.
