That beta is that stable for gaming?

I play so many games myself, that i could not imagine using a beta and not having some issues....but that is just me.

I figured it would be all right for everyday use....but to throw a bunch of games at it...I just assumed that would be a recipe for disaster.

I haven't done much gaming in 7 becase I don't feel like reistalling all the games I already have in Vista. I did try bf2 in 7 and it ran great.

Both the combos posted seem to be dead. :[

As for 7, the beta has some issues with some things, but it should be stable enough to at least install until you get another 64-bit OS.

And I would spend an extra 25 bucks (extra 5 bucks up front) on these bad boys:

Newegg.com - G.SKILL 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

Faster, better timings, well worth it.
