Win7 or ??

Post  Shiatan on Sat Oct 24, 2009 4:56 pm

Ok i upgraded to win7 from my vista and I just have to say what a sweet os it is. I'd advise anyone running vista to upgrade to it also, had an xtra 20 fps in our 10 man this evening with full settings and shizzle.
Dont know if xp users should upgrade but if you got a dualcore and 2gig of ram I'd go for it if i was you.
So my advice is if you got vista, upgrade when you get the chance and if your an xp head do the same you wont be dissapointed.

yeah, ive like a 15-20fps increase using windows 7 now with settings on high! While i was playing with 10fps with settings on low on vista... tho if you have xp its probably fine for a few more years tbh (they stop updating in 2014 for xp i think).

Upgrading was easy (from vista), tho i wish i knew that it would automatically backup my most of my files and put it in the windows.old folder so i didnt have to waste all that time transfering it to my external harddrive!

Yeah vista was killing me even with my i7 8gb of ram and 2x295s Sad
Now wow's running 100fps+ with full shad and all Very Happy

p.s.
i hear theres not much point upgrading from xp to 7 at the moment unless you wanna play some heavey dx10 games and such, but upgrading from vista should be a given imo

It sounds really really appealing o.O
But i'm a nab when it comes to that kind of stuff, so i'll have to ask: How do i upgrade to Win7? And will i need to re-install everything i have on my pc? (sigh, i so hate re-installing wow + the list of addons i got)

If you have xp subie then theres realy no need to upgrade but if you have vista you can get the upgrade version that will install over vista with no loss of data or changes, even your desktop layout remains the same
