    Both will run fine, though I'm partial to win7.

    Thank you. Should I download any special version of the win7 to work properly?

    And to that point, I'll put on my moderator hat and state that we do not permit any discussion of piracy. I'm not accusing you OP of doing that as there are school institutions (and even MS?) that let people download the OS. My point is that if the discussion crosses over into torrents and what not, this thread will be locked.

    Check this to see if your Mac will support 64-bit Windows.
