Post Planetside and Windows 7 Reply with quote
Hi all

I've just read through Munkhi's Vista post, but I was wondering if any of you fine fellows/fellowettes had tried PS on a 64-bit Windows 7 machine? Is the process of getting it running similar to with Vista?

I ask as I may have 'accidently' ordered parts for my first fully new PC since 2003 this morning, and I'm gonna put the Windows 7 RC candidate on it.

Cheers

I will give you my report asap.
Ordered a new harddrive (SSD ) on which I will install Windows 7 Ultimate x64, the real deal not a RC. Gotta love MSDN subscription.
I hope that the harddrive will arrive on friday.

Excellent, no problem running as admin

Also, thanks Takeru! I'll be using the RC right up til the end to put off having to buy a license (I'm so strapped for cash I don't even have a case to put the bits in yet!)

I wonder if going from a 1GB single core XP3200+ to a 4GB quad core Phenom II X4 955 will improve PS performance... I wouldn't be surprised if it got worse! Will be nice to dump the AGP gfx card regardless

Thanks guys
