  1. Thanks, now to just hope that everything will work together the way I want it to! That is a big wish lol.

    to be honest, you can download Win 7 free online


    :o :non: "content that promotes, encourages, or provides instructional information about illegal activities " piracy is not legal and it is against the terms of service to encourage it.

    @ OP buy windows.
  3. Even if it is not your first build never freeby windows unless it's a beta from microsoft and your actually good enough to be a beta person for it or you'll have 100% fail rate. But good choice for first build.
  4. No worries, I plan on purchasing Windows, but I do plan to use an OEM just to save some money on it.
  5. Just made the purchase. Now on to the hard parts of waiting and then building.
  6. The anticipation is always the worst for me as well! even if i'm building for someone else lol. Hope it comes together nicely for you!
