    32 bit versions of Windows 7 will still be stuck to the same theoretical limit of 4GB RAM. In practice this means 3.xGB max addressable RAM after system devices and depending on your Graphics Card.

    Source:

    While the maximum RAM limit for 32-bit Windows 7 editions is 4GB, when it comes to the 64-bit editions, the amount of memory that the OS can address depends on which edition you are running.
    Here are the upper RAM limits for the different editions of Windows 7:
    • Starter: 8GB
    • Home Basic: 8GB
    • Home Premium: 16GB
    • Professional: 192GB
    • Enterprise: 192GB
    • Ultimate: 192GB

    Windows 7 still has some stuff that's kind of wonky, but as a whole, it's actually pretty nice. way better than vista for sure.

    Even in beta, too, it runs pretty well.

    I've got it on the work machine downstairs.

    I think you would be wiser to spend your money on Win7 over Vista. From what I can tell there are less issues with Win7 out of the gate, then Vista did at the same point. Although it may be better now, Vista still has some issues on the 64bit version.

    That would seem like a bad choice.

    Microsoft make bad operating systems from time to time. Microsoft ME was their first big blooper, Vista another.

    By common agreement of most everyone in the industry Windows 7 is better in it's RC form (except for a few blips) than Vista is with SP2 installed.

    Certainly by release date or very soon thereafter with updates Windows 7 will beat Vista in every department.

    I'm not suggesting you install the RC but when it's released.

    Many companies have totally bypassed Vista and are waiting on 7 to upgrade desktops from XP.

    Save your $$ and buy 7 when it comes out. You will not be disappointed. I have vista ultimate 64 and just switched back to home premium 32 bit because I was having lots of issues with several programs and games.

    BTW if you think your alienware notebook will spank most of the desktops here, you are fooling yourself. Alienware while better than most are over priced hot running POS's
