Hello lads,


well, step by step i'm about to achieve the building of my new computer. Now the question is: What about the operating system?

Of course, i'm looking for a 64 bits O.S. What do you mean? Should i choose Windows 8 or Windows 7 or Windows XP64 bits? I'm ok for buying a second hand O.S, on Ebay or something, but i don't know anything about 64 bits O.S

Which one works the best?

All advices and opinions are welcome. :mm1:

I am not using it yet, but I think best OS is windows 7.


Horrible stories so far about windows 8.

Physical limitations of RAM (as far as I know):

XP (64bit): 16 GB
win7 (64bit): 2-192 GB (depends on version)
win8 (64bit): 128/512 GB (depends on version)

regarding the use of multi-cpu, it is a similar issue...

Yup Morty, also my daughter told me about problems on Windows 8

Considering the amount of RAM, well, maybe 16 GB is enough ? No ?

Well, in fact i'm looking for a 64 bits O.S only because i plan to use also 3DSmax and AutoCAD both on 64 bits on the same computer.

XP is a bad choice since support for it will stop in april 2014.
I would choose win 7 64 bits. I have used it for 4 years now and am very happy with it!
It is stable and I never felt the need to do a clean install like with XP when I did a clean install every year!

Trust is hard to gain but easy to lose.
