Default Re: Just installed Win 7 Ultimate

Can I mention that I love Win 7, and now I see what all the hype is about, oh and it's sooo true!!

My puter starts up SOOO freakin fast now, with Vista it was like the HD had to run through every dumb program. Gosh, once I got this issue figured out with Steam, it's like a hot knife through butta in everything. Gosh, this was soo worth it, I can't wait for my ultimo dual rig w/ gulftown, ssd's, and fermi. (if that's the best card at the time I do this build)

It's gonna be amazing!!!

The Source games problem is that you have to install the latest DX.

Just an FYI, but steam games now work for me, it was Spyware Doctor my antispyware/virus program that stopped the games from working. I posted a link to the fix for it up above.
