Intel Core i7 2600k
Asus Sabertooth p67
Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 1866
Not decided on Video Card...Any suggestions? Won't be doing gaming...mostly HD video editing and rendering!
64GB SSD
1TB HDD

Go to the link below and click on the feature comparison chart to see what the differences are. WinXP mode is an important one if you need to run older programs in WinXP.

I am using the Ultimate version but I did not pay for it it was purchased for me by a former employer for partial payment for some work I did for him. Anyway I find there is a great deal that comes with Ultimate that I have no use for what so ever.

Personally I would not today but I pre-ordered a bunch of W7 DVD's for under 50 each.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

Jefro, what do you think the link in #2 is about?

Sometimes I wonder if these threads get read.

Not that i really matters. I posted a link to a single page that I felt was more exact and direct to the question.

I did want to post that I felt it was not a good use of money to buy the more expensive ones.
