Default this should go to more forums...

if you plan to test your machine a lot, ie., tweak, bm, etc...

don't upgrade to vista...at least for now or keep that in your head:

Vista licensing also limits benchmarking

As some may know, the licensing for Vista seems a lot more restrictive than for xp, let alone it has a different algorithym/routine.

Time will tell how this may or may not change
