Which brings us FULL CIRCLE back to this:

I can't believe I started this thread 5 months ago. Time flies. I did some more research, read a couple of pretty good reviews for Crucial SSD's and finally popped for the 250 gig version. It should be heading toward the Philippines in a week or so. Just has to arrive a my re-shippers warehouse. Grabbed a SJ4000+ for my wife who wants to record a trip to 100 islands here in the Philippines, including a potential underwater walk.

And a couple copies of Windows 7 Pro 64 bit so I can get legal with Billy Gates. Things should improve shortly. Though I was surprised, there was only the one SP1 for Windows 7? No SP2? They just hopped to Win 8/8.1/10?

SSD and a legal copy of Win 7, nice. Your machine will probably be a little more stable and maybe even more responsive/fast than before! GG

I already upgraded to 10, but FWIW, you're in for a LOT of updates on 7 because they never rolled it into another service pack. I think I read an article on zdnet about it taking practically all day to get a clean 7 install fully ready.

All the more reason for an SSD... best upgrade I ever got. You almost don't realize that bottleneck is there until you get rid of it, and then you never want to go back.

Bottleneck isn't a good term really, think more like a choke point. Bottlenecking is when something is overpowered or underpowered when coupled with something of the opposite power and can't be used effeciently. Either way, it WILL be a great upgrade nonetheless.

So here is a question for you Windows 7/Windows 10 gurus. Should I bother with the Windows 7 pro 64 bit updates or should I just take advantage of the free Windows 10 upgrade offer and move there as soon as I have legal key?

Now, as a quick refresher, my systems are older. Currently my computer runs on a BIOSTAR Group G31-M7 TE motherboard, Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 @ 2.66GHz processor, and 4 gig of DDR2 ram. It has not-quite-legal Win 7 Pro 64 bit for the operating system.

I also have a GIGABYTE GA-P35C-DS3R CORE 2 DUO 2.66GHZ motherboard I have not installed yet. I am tempted to move to this since it is a better motherboard and I can choose to run either 8 gig of DDR2 or 4 gig of DDR3 on it.

Will both of these motherboards upgrade gracefully to Windows 10?
