1000W is overkill for even the next generation of technology seeing as components are currently going for energy efficiency rather then sheer performance don't foget politics are suppose to be "saving the world"

Im currently running both but on seperate hard drives. To be honest i hate vista i just have it for no good reason apart from the 3d desktop that keeps me entertained briefly. I much prefer XP, and i think microsoft i going the wrong way with their OS's
