I would also be wondering about if i would have to reformat the machine to install the new Windows 7 after it comes out.. or would the RC just update with a valid code?
i would be using this pc for main reasons :
Gaming (nessesity) -- WOW - COD4 - COD4MW2(On release ofc:)) - SIM 3 (not massive demand) this type of gaming, FPS MMO and so on..
Also it would have to be capeable of running stable and not slow down if 50% of the 1TB gets filled...
Do you think this would be a good choice @ £678
