You could always go with XP isntead. Vista is crap. I would go with a better 2.1 system and onboard sound to cut costs. Id also choose headphones or speakers. Im sure you got some MP3 player or CD player headphones laying around until you can afford something else.

Here we go with the Vista is crap, crap. How long have you used Vista? More than an hour? Or have you just read what some random website says about it? It's the way of the future, so why not get it now.

You could also get a cheaper headset. Although you will cut some things down, it might not be much. Also, I would rather get a monitor by Samsung or Acer - never heard anything about the one you linked.

You get what you pay for.

Invisible,

A bit off topic... I was wondering why you went with the 64 bit version of Vista. I'm getting ready to build a new system as well and am going to go with Vista. I wasn't sure if I should go with 32 or 64 bit. I was worried that 64 bit might have some compatability issues.

I was hoping you could explain your logic and that might help me decide as well. Thanks, and good luck with your build.

BTW, I wouldn't go with a smaller monitor - if you do, you'll just end up upgrading later and it will cost you more money in the long run. Go with 22".

64 bit is only advantageous if your planning on running more than 3Gb of memory. Otherwise, it will only cause for driver and software compatibility issues, and little to no performance gains. Although, I could understand why it would be attractive for costing as much as the 32 bit version, it's not worth it.

Gurusan convinced me that 4gb is definitely enough because of the games.. its gonna be very demanding..
