I know it's asked question.I have both retail windowses : XP PRO and Windows 7 Ultimate.
Which one should i go for?
I have laptop,which I'm doing all other work than gaming,that means I don't need to use quite anything what W7 offers[only 2GB of ram at this point].However,W7 gives you directX 10.1,which my video card supports and which will give me better graphics.
AMD Athlon II X2 250 [3,0 Ghz]
Club 3D GT 220 [512mb GDDR3]
2GB Crucial RAM[DDR3-1333]
Which one You would suggest : Windows 7 or old Windows XP?
Main trouble would be 2GB of ram,which is because I'm asking this.
I know that im going to add 2gb of ram soon.However,i won't be updating videocard in near future.It's a budget build and parts are already orderd.I have lot
s to think about i quess.i just can't make up my mind -.-
BTW, if you're running the 32-bit version of Windows, then you won't be able to utilize all 4gb of memory due to the limitations of running in 32-bit mode.
If you really want to access all 4gb or more of memory, then you want to upgrade to the 64-bit version of Windows. In that case, if that's what you want to do, then go with Windows 7 because I'm not sure how many drivers are available for the 64-bit version of XP. I never used it before because I had some older hardware at the time. Now, I'm more up-to-date and I have 64-bit drivers for all my hardware, including my motherboard which worked right out of the box with the installed Windows 7 drivers.
