  1. Hello Showdown88;

    Yes it will. And WinXP is a qualified OS to get the upgrade to Win7.
    But you probably don't want Ultimate. Home Premium is the way to go.
  2. Also - in case you didn't know it - you can't 'upgrade in place' from WinXP.
    It will need to be a clean install which means re-installing all your programs & apps.
  3. Have you used Win7 before? If not, there is a way to keep WinXP on your computer while you're learning to use Win7 and getting it setup the way you want.

    I want windows 7 ult for gaming I use windows 7 I just have a copy of windows xp on another computer and I was going to redo windows xp on and then try to upgrade to windows 7 I was wondering if the upgrade is different from the full version on windows 7
  5. For gaming - you definitely want Home Premium.
    Ultimate has other stuff running that gives you a bit less performance.

    I read so many reviews on windows 7 ult being better lol now I am confused
  7. Think about the extra features that Win7 Ultimate has.
    What do they do for gaming? Nothing.
    They're all 'business related' features.
  8. Windows Server domain joining
    Multi-Display Terminal Services
    Remote Desktop Host
    Ability to set Software Restriction Policies
    System Image Backup to Network location
    UNIX based applications subsystem
    Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Enhancements
    etc
