Worth upgrading to Windows 8 for DX 11.1? /> 
Hello,
I am currently running Windows 7 Home
Premium x64 (OEM System Builder Pack).
I will be primarily
upgrading for BF4 which recommends Windows 8 64 for DirectX 11.1. Here
are the official system specs released few hours ago: />http://i44.tinypic.com/t7y3jc.png
Most importantly, what price
should i be looking for? (Windows 8 Professional/ Windows 8 upgrade
pack)
Any suggestions? Thanks :s12:

I was wondering what people's experiences of suse 10.3 were, and if
it's significantly better than 10.2 which I'm using at the moment. />My system is running okay in general, and they do say if it ain't
broke don't fix it.
I've read that there's some improvements to
yast and a few other bits and bobs, but nothing that groundbreaking it
seems.
Perhaps I should hold on for suse 11?

I built a new desktop last year with a 64 Bit processor but did not
want to drop the $ on a new OS at the time. I continue to use the 32
Bit Version of XP. I have 4 GB of RAM but can only use about 3 of it
due to the video card RAM and XP's 4 GB limit. I do not want to go to
Win 7, I'd like to upgrade to the 64-Bit version of XP. Are there
compatibility issues with going to Win XP 64 Bit for older drivers,
programs, etc?
I have a laptop with Win 7 Home and have had some
trouble getting older programs and devices to run on it - hence the
reason to avoid it on the desktop.

My company is going to build 2 new server computers. One computer will
be replacing our current database server, while the other computer
will be a backup for our web server (running Windows Server 2003). My
question is, is it necessary upgrading from Windows Server 2003 to
2008 since I have an extra copy of 2003 already? Are there features of
2008 that are absolutely necessary for a server environment? Back
then, when we upgraded from 2000 to 2003, the speed of our website
along with our database increased significantly, so if 2008 does
exactly the same thing, then upgrading would be the most feasible
option.

Hi there,
I have a DELL E520 with Vista 32bit, ive upped RAM to
6gb from 2gb and its running an INTEL PENTIUM D CPU 2.8GHZ. />Thought about changing OS to Win7 64bit and maxing RAM to 8gb -
havent thought about upgrading pocessor yet... wondered whether this
was worth doing or more cost effective and efficient to just buy new
system / tower running i3 or i5 processor ratherthan spend £300+
upgrading what I have?
Any suggestions / thoughts would be great
as kinda want a decent speedy setup (although internet does dipout)
without speding mega bucks as may need to also buy a laptop or
notebook in addition for work.
Thanks for help and
