    Can I upgrade to Vista and then upgrade to Windows7? Apparently it cannot be done directly.

    There is no reason whatsoever for doing something like that. On the contrary you have every reason going for a fresh 7 SP1 installation. Upgrade installations are guaranteed to always leave something behind which could make you run into problems at a later stage. Also your system would be slower. Why would you wanna do something like that :confused:

    What's your existing hardware?

    Yeah just go with the brand new Win 7. Wouldn't you pay more to buy vista an then win7 anyways? Doesn't make sense.
