COD WAW just goes to a black screen - still working on that. I see everyone else running Windows 7 having the same issue so it looks like a game issue.

The x64 version is out there. If you acquired the x86 version, you didn't really get it legitimatly anyways but you'd have an idea of where to find it. Its out there, Windows 7 x64 build 6801.

So where can I obtain a copy of W7 x64?

I was going to back my gaming rig up via Acronis this morning and thought I might try it if I can get my hands on a copy.

Can't find any good x64 torrents so I'll try to see if I can get a speedy x32 torrent going today. I hear that you only have 30 days on this? If so, I may have to load this into a VM.

Care to provide some benchmarks or you're gonna just continue to drivel? I bet you a cookie there's no FPS difference whatsoever.

No, not really. Grab copy and do it yourself. I don't care to convince anyone, I was just posting my results of using Windows 7.

I bet you a cookie you're too lazy to do that.

Finally, it downloaded overnight and I'm installing it under VMWare Server. I haven't messed with VMWare Server in a while, but it's extremely familiar via ESXi Server For some reason, VirtualBox would not try to install it. Will post comments later.

the same places you download anything you didnt "purchase".

You cant sign up for the beta, there will be a public RC beta next year. For now there is a leaked copy of 6801 from PDC floating around the net you can "acquire".
