Re: Upgrading to 64 Bit

The previous advice sounds good. Here's my two cents:

Win 7 64-bit Pro lets you use old programs and is pretty bullet-proof. This lets me use an old, old financial program I started using with Windows 95!

Yes, you can use your old hard drive. Might even buy an enclosure and use it as an external drive. Always nice to have extra capacity.

Yes, you can use your old DVD player, but consider getting one with Blu-ray capability.

I recommend 8-16 GB of RAM for future-proofing.

I like the i7 processors, but there may be better out there now. (I'm not an expert, but some of the folks on this forum are wizards.)
