Default Vista on my new build?

Hey guys,

so i have the opportunity to get a full version of vista premium for 70 bucks and was wondering if it would run ok on my new system. i plan to game a bit (mostly rts like generals and C&C 3)

amd x2 3600+

7900gs

thanks!

It will run just fine, on that system. It's more than the recommended system requirements.
