    It will, but probably not enough to make the upgrade worthwhile, especially if you'll get 7 when you buy a new PC.

    I'm no expert, but post the spec of your PC and we'll probably be able to find something else for a similar price to 7 that'll give you more performance.

    Thanks for the info, I only have 1GB Ram and it's a slimline media PC so I'm not sure if I can open it up and just put another stick of ram in. Also heard people are having issues upgrading to 7?

    Personally I wouldn't upgrade to Win7 under those circumstances, even though I'm a bit of a Windows 7 fanboy. Yes it runs faster, but it uses the same kernal as Vista - in other words, under the hood it's virtually identical to Vista.

    If you're buying a new PC it should come with Win7 installed on it anyway, and if you buy Win7 you're looking at shelling out over 100 for an OS that will come included on your new PC.

    What make and model is it? Someone smarter than I will be able to work out what case you have and whether or not a memory upgrade would be easily sorted. If you can up the RAM it'll be your best bet. 7 needs a minimum of 1gb for the 32bit version, so I don't think you'd get any benefit from the upgrade.

    does anyone know what would happen if i upgraded to windows 7 after installing the game on my pc? i'm not a teccy so bear with me....

    would i have to wipe my laptop to install windows 7, thus losing my fm installation? and if so will i be able to re-activate it?

    i think you know what i mean?
