Default Planning a new build? Need a x64 bit OS? I have a DVD copy of Win 7 to give away!

If you are planning a new build and are in need of a x64 bit OS drop me a line! I have a copy of the Windows 7 beta to give away to someone who could really use it.

If you already have a x64 bit OS (xp, vista, etc.) please let someone else take advantage of this.

Cheers!

I would love to attempt a windows 7 test on my secondary system. But I'm not doing a new build anytime soon lol.

hey ST!

I was hoping to help someone out that is in the same situation I was in last week. Just built a new rig and only had a copy of Win XP 32 bit. Didn't really want to go out and buy and expensive x64 bit copy of XP or Vista when I knew Win 7 was around the corner. Cadaveca was nice enough to send me a copy of this beta in the mail! This really helped me out and I love windows 7!

If I don't get a response by tonight I will send it your way!

Cheers!

Thanks gingerbee! It turned out real nice... Can't wait to see if the new XMP update (BIOS) plays nice with the 1866MHz RAM! If you decide to flash this BIOS with this RAM could you let me know your results?

Well if anybody else needs a copy and don't want to download it off torrents, I can burn some and ship them out for like $5 or something just to cover the DVD + Shipping costs. Beta keys are all generic so that's no biggie.

I could even provide a Vista x64 SP1 DVD without a key meaning you could run it for 30 days(or is it 14?) before you'd get kicked out. Though I don't know the legality around this.
