Windows XP/Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm not sure if this is the right forum to ask, pardon me if this is the wrong place. So, here is my question:
    I think of buying a new PC when Windows 7 comes out. But, some of my favorite games are incompatible with Windows Vista (even in compatibility mode), I guess Windows 7 will be incompatible too. I will not be able to install XP and dual-boot if a buy I new PC , because I have an XP OEM license. Can someone give me advice what should I do ? What I think of is:

    1. Find XP retail from somewhere on the internet and buy it.
    2. Buy XP OEM and Win7 OEM when buying the new PC (is it possible?)
    3. Buy XP OEM and Win7 retail when buying the new PC

    An suggestions ?

    And my last question - let's suppose I bought XP (Home), will it work with Core i7 processor? Will I still be legal, as XP supports 1 to 2 cpu's, and Core i7 has more than 2 cores ?
