I was wondering which version of windows 7 I should get. I'm building an entirely new PC and I plan on gaming on it, do video editing, surf the web, stream movies and shows things of that sort. Is there a specific version that would cater my needs specifically ? And if there is, OEM vs Retail is also on the mind. Which one is the better choice? Thank you in advance I'll be using 16Gigs of ram and don't plan on going any higher for at least 2 years.
As long as you stick with single-socket motherboard, Home Premim is all you would need (unless you need some of fancier Pro features). With 16gb of RAM, you will definitely need 64-bit version, but I think both OEM and RETAIL versions include dual-media.
