ok, i've done a lot of looking and am really struggling to understand what the best version of windows to use as a bootcamp partition is. I have the windows 7 RC but eventually I need to upgrade to a real deal. I see all these different SP's and OEM's etc and it just confuses me. especially when i try to compare prices. So what would be the best and cheapest option here? i have a 2.86ghz MBP with the 9400m and 9600m gt vid cards. I basically just want to play games because the mac side of gaming leaves much to be desired. Thank you! I do not have a previous version of windows so upgrades do nothing for me, I am a student at UGA though so discounts would be cool. I searched the site and only found a thread that didn't really do anything except ask what i had asked. soo.... basically just give me the full name of whatever Windows OS you think is best and i will look into it! 64 bit would be awesome. thanks!
