Hi guys and girls

I built a quadcore PC a few months ago and decided to use windows 7 for the last 2months? I love the way win7 looks and feels but I have had alot of problems with a few programs. (its win7 64bit)

Now I need your help to decide what to do for an OS..

What should I use?

XP was great for the cctv side of things. win7 looks nice and has good features.

your comments please.

Just go with Vista if its Win7 thats having issues. Or try Win7 32bit edition.

Not really sure why they are pushing the 64bit edition tbh, there is little need for it.

I don't know why I ended up with the 64bit lol.

might do the 32bit win7 first as I like the way it works, gotta dump all 120gb of files onto the external drive before I do frown boooooorring... cheers matty I will no doubt be back to this thread when im all done

just remember that if your machine has more than 3 gigs of ram the 64bit o/s will make use of it as were the 32bit will only use 3gigs max.
