what are your current specs for your windows xp. versions depend on system specs. I have windows 7 Professional on my computer. I play wow and surfing the internet.
do you want to keep windows xp install while performing initial windows 7 install( for example dual booting)
By default windows will automatically backup everything to windows.old directory when you install windows 7 if you are doing a fresh install.
Hope this helps

First of all run Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor to see if your PC is ready to run Windows 7. It will check your hardware and tell you if it is supported by Windows 7 or not.
For just gaming and internet, Windows 7 Home Premium is good. You can install Windows 7 in dual boot mode with XP. To do dual boot install, insert Windows 7 DVD when running XP and run setup. That way Windows 7 will be installed on another partition. If you want to do clean install, save your important files from C: to another partition and then boot from Windows 7 DVD and choose to format the C: partition during setup.
