Windows Vista Questions!
I am getting ready to build a new rig, the new 45nm Quad, 4G of RAM..etc. I will be running Vista as my primary OS, but b4 I make the transition I have a few questions that I hope you can help me answer.
1st. The main reason that people were getting Vista 64 bit, and correct me if I’m wrong is because of the ability to take full advantage of the 4G of ram, was there anything else? Now that SP1 is here, it can make your 32 bit Vista recognize all 4G of ram is that true? I have some old games that I like to play from time to time, and I know that 64 bit is not compatible with some of the old games/software. If I would to get the 32 bit, would I be missing out on something if I would have gotten the 64?
2nd. What Vista edition would be the best choice to get? Ultimate Looks like the best. The full edition is about $326 (Amazon.com) & the Upgrade one is $194 (Amazon.com). What did most of u people with Vista get? The upgrade or the Full edition? & which edition was it?
3rd. If I decide to go with Ultimate, the upgrade version, how exactly will it work? On the new rig, would I need to install the XP first and only then will I be able to upgrade to Vista? That’s sound time consuming and stupid if u ask me…
All feedback is appreciated,
