I recently participated in Toshiba's free Win 7 upgrade, with the order still pending confirmation. The problem is, I'm not putting it on my laptop, but rather my desktop. I anticipate no problems unless Toshiba is really p/o'ed at the world and decides to send a non retail/OEM version of 7. I'm upgrading my comp for the latest release of MW2 and am currently using Linux Ubuntu 9.04.
My processor, RAM, and mobo aren't changing, so I decided to post my problem here.
Original comp: HP a6700f. Just look it up on NewEgg if you need to know more.
x64 bit processor (AMD Phenom X4 @ 1.8)
1 x 4 GB Ram Sticks, available 0/4 slots left on my mobo
Upping my vid card to a 512MB, 896MB, or 1GB Dedicated RAM card, not sure yet an exact one.http://www.pcgameshardware.com/aid,699312/...-Duty/Practice/
is the benchmarking table I use, set on 1680 x 1050 res
The scene they benchmarked is one of the more intensive ones, any vid card between the GeForce GTX 260-216/896M and the Radeon HD 4870 512M cards is the one I'll be getting.
All I need to know is with a 32 bit 7 on a 64 bit processor, just how much RAM will be utilized. I've heard 2.8-3.2, up to 2 RAM slots, etc.
Just a nice strait answer would be nice, how much RAM and how much VRAM will be available to me?
