operating system help

Recommended Posts

Hi guys;

Finally decided to upgrade from my OEM HP Q6600 store bought Desktop circa 2006,to something a bit bigger. Hope I haven't gotten my head into something too big. Here's my thoughts and if anyone can make recommendations I will be grateful.

First I wanted a more powerful CPU,but my budget will only allow an I3-4330;LGA 1150. This I got an ASUS B85-Plus MB for. I recently upped my HP to  a 500w PSU and added a MSI 460. It also has a HDD and optical drive. I was intending to swap the Vid card;PSU ;Optical drive and HDD and put them all in a new case(not yet purchased) Can I do this???

I also need to upgrade the RAM,and the ASUS manual specifies what I need.

Here's where they threw me a curveball......the manual states the MB must have either Win 7 or 8 only....my current HDD has Vista.

I don't know whether to go with 7 or 8,and 32bit or 64 bit.....once again budget constraints.

I'm dying to start,but want to do it right......any help will be great...Thanks

IMHO, Win 7 64-bit is the best OS right now for FSX.

I would agree with that. W8 still has a few teething problems.

 

W7 64 is the best bet.
