I got a copy of vista home premium from newegg fro 120. I only went vista because i built a brand new system, and so far i like it. Only the video card driver is a problem when it comes to opengl games. Games that are direct3d work flawlessly.

well i just added a swiftech waterblock to my 8800gts. Now im waiting for my thermal epoxy to get in so i can attached the ram sinks. The thermal tape that comes with them sucks. Cleaned everything with 91% alcohol, let them dry, and they would not stick. The epoxy will help alot.

I love my lcd. I went from a sony 21" trinitron to a sony 19" lcd last year and will never go back. Plus the room with my computer stays cooler. CRT's put off alot of heat.
