hey guys, i was looking at windows is working on windows 8 with a release date of 2nd half of 2012. and i read this: "Even better, if your PC (or even netbook) runs Windows 7, you won’t need an upgrade, according to Microsoft"

unless im not understanding this, if i buy windows 7, i will be able to update to windows 8? or will i need to buy windows 8 also?

so what is better, wait for windows 8? or go for windows 7 and hope i don't have to spend 200$ on windows 8

I think what they are saying is that the hardware requirements haven't changed. However without reading the entire document I can't be 100% sure on that. That being said, Win 7 users defiantly wont get windows 8 for free

hi guys.. i found out i had a 30% discount with Dell since i work for Telus, and i found this:

this is an Alienware Aurora

PROCESSOR Intel® Core™ i7-2600K (8MB Cache) Overclocked Turbo Boost to 3.9GHz

OPERATING SYSTEM Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium, 64Bit, English

CHASSIS COLOR Matte Stealth Black Chassis with 525W Multi-GPU Approved Power Supply

COOLING OPTION Alienware™ High-Performance Liquid Cooling

MEMORY 8GB Dual Channel DDR3 at 1333MHz

GRAPHICS CARD 1.25GB GDDR5 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 560 Ti

HARD DRIVE 1TB SATA 3Gb/s (7,200RPM) 32MB Cache

MONITOR ST2320L 23-inch Full HD Widescreen Monitor

SOUND CARD Integrated 7.1 Channel Audio

OPTICAL DRIVE Single Drive: 24X CD/DVD burner (DVD+/-RW) w/double layer write capability

and with all the discounts available.. it would end up being 1227.25, instead of 1800$

what do you guys think?

That's a pretty good deal you've got there. In the future I suggest upgrading your power supply to around 750w so you can get another gtx 560 :)
