OEMs are cheaper than the upgrades and is 100% legal(important when you are basically selling it to someone). mroilfield I am not sure what you mean by "from another PC." OEM copies are specifically made for building new PCs. Patio, I know about the upgrade trick and even did NOT do it for my PC. ;D

I am sorry but I had the understanding that OEM stood for "Original Equipment Manufacturer" meaning it would be a copy that ships with say an already manufactured PC. I was also under the impression that a new retail version of an OS was made for building new PC's or upgrade other PC's.

Sorry if I was wrong.

OEM does stand for "Original Equipment Manufacturer." When you buy lets say a DELL yo will have an OEM copy installed. The reason that the full retail versions are so expensive is because you get 32 and 64 bit together. OEMs are just one ore the other and are a cheaper way for people like me to build computers because I know exactly what version I need. Think of it this way. DELL uses OEMs and sells to you. I use an OEM and sell to my friend. Also if I build a PC for myself then I can use an OEM and save money.

While the retail upgrade version is useful for the general market to do just that, the full version is mostly a way to get more money from people that don't have the tech savvy, or whatever, to know to get an OEM copy.

I ran both Vista and the RC of Win7 64bit with 2G of RAM and never experienced what is mentioned above.
Beyond that if and when he does add more RAM with a 32bit OS he would be limited to under 4G.
I have been corrected.   :-[

It is ok to be wrong. There is something interesting in what you said. I have been watching videos of Bill Gates and Steave Jobs talking about how computers have advanced so quickly and it makes me wonder where computers will be in 20 years. Will we see the first commercially available Tb stick of RAM and will we be going into a 128 bit system. And think of the power that video cards will have.... |V|

    Should do fine...
    I run a Q6600...rock solid.

    BTW with Win7 you recieve both a 32 and 64bit DVD in the package so there are still options...

    I dont know about this... if this is true then its great!
    thanks for sharing this :)

    Hard to say. I think that we will not have any of this stuff. Or it will not be useful. Progress does not follow a nice starring line. Years ago they siad the electric car was dead. Then it came back. And died again.  And now we have the Hybrid. We can not even predict what the automobile will be.

    Personal Computers have been a practical item from the early 1980s. But the machine you can build or buy now for under a $1000 would be classified ans a military weapon back in 1982.  Maybe the government does not want the PC to develop anymore. It would be a super weapon if it gets anymore powerful.

    Look at the bottom of the second link. It shows the core i5 and i7. According to that my core i5 dose 10,222.58 MegaFlops. You may also see that it is more than the i7 920 stock and at 3.5GHz. ;D

    I get what yo are trying to say though.
