Er I revived this thread for a couple of reasons:

1. Nice post Cyber, but I still had to go with Vista just cause it would be too much of a hassle to go with xp and upgrade later, might as well just go with the new and hope they come out with more updates and better drivers for vista.

2. Your pricing seems to be significantly off, you say Vista costs 200 for the regular home basic, however:

Newegg.com - Microsoft Windows Vista 32-Bit Home Basic for System Builders Single Pack DVD - OEM

sells it for just 89.99 and for the Aero glass for premium:

Newegg.com - Microsoft Windows Vista 32-Bit Home Premium for System Builders Single Pack DVD - OEM

sells for for just 111.99
