Yeah they all pretty much work.. You might get the odd older game that has problems but you'll be able to find fixes for them anyway.

Home Premium is probably the one to get. Basic doesn't come with some of the core features of Vista and Ultimate just adds the Business features (which I doubt you would need for a home pc) and a couple little gimmicks.

I was just looking around and found this...

Newegg.com - BFG Tech BFGRPHYSX128P PhysX Processing Unit 128MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Physics Card - Retail

is something like this worth it?

Heh, thanks for the fast answer, as always.

Congrats on the upgrading you plan on doing. Im surprised your not going with a p5b or deluxe mb like you suggest all the time.
