Agree, Get 7. Vista is unstable and has to many problems

As KSoD (our resident Windows expert), will tell you, that isn't really true. Vista was only unstable and problematic on release and the first year of its life. It's now a decent and stable OS.
Not that I'm recommending it of course - Windows 7 all the way

Thanks. I know vista is good, now, but which OS would play with an ssd better or does it matter?

Windows 7 will probably be more reliable and get your better performance from an SSD.

Also, Vista 64-bit doesn't support TRIM - TRIM is a thingy that SSDs use to increase their lifespan, and prevent the SSD's performance from reducing over time.
