  1. bump?
  2. Nup, the builds perfect.

    Unless you think you will need more than 16GB of RAM in the future, Home Premium 64bit will be fine.
    Though I advise getting Windows 8 64bit.
  3. thanks, what if any advantages would I have from getting 8? I havent tried it personally but I keep hearing bad stuff.
  4. Faster boot times, you can pause file transfers now and it will have a longer support cycle than 7 will.
    The bad stuff youv heard is probably about the Metro interface and the lack of a start button in the desktop. Its possible now to divert Metro and restore the start menu back into the desktop
