Hey everyone, Ive been learning about HDD and Operating Systems for a little while now but im still pretty nervous about changing stuff. I figured i would check with you guys before i did anything.
First off, i have downloaded the Windows 7 RC but im not sure what type of CD i need to put it on. I know there is a bunch of different types of CD's like DVD-R and stuff like that but im not sure what type i have to go out and buy.
Anyone happen to know what type i would need?
Secondly, i don't have a huge range of un-used HDD so im kinda forced to put it on one with some somewhat important stuff on it. Is there a well known program that someone knows of that can Backup stuff? I only need to backup about 31 gigs.
Thirdly, i believe there is a 64 bit version and a 32bit version. Ive read up on the difference between the two and all i pretty much got was that the 64 bit was pretty bad, but it enables you to get over 3 or 4 ( can't remember) gigs of RAM. What do you guys think, is it worth getting the 64 bit or should i stick with 32 bit?
Plus, how do i know if my computer is 64 bit compatible? I checked Everest ultimate edition and it said "64-bit x86 Extension (AMD64, Intel64) Supported."
Does that mean i can run 64 bit if i want to?
Thanks for Reading!
Have a nice day!
