What are some of the differences between desktop graphics and workstation graphics if you don't mind me asking.

^^ I think the main difference is workstation graphics are optimized/designed for rendering while desktop graphics are made for gaming.

If you want to build a system now I would get an Intel p35/p45 motherboard since they are more stable and do no suffer from video corruption issues like nvidia motherboards.

Newegg.com - BIOSTAR TForce TP45HP LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

If you are willing to wait a month or two I recommend waiting for Core i7 (nehalem) and getting a x58 motherboard. It will be 25-50% faster than the current 45nm quads clock for clock and you should be able to fit one in your budget.

4. Under the system requirements it says 4gb of ram is required for Vista. If that's the case then 8gb seems like a fairly reasonable thing to go for

You said 4gbs required for system requirements. that was it. not that his software on vista requires that.

So I spread no wrong information. Don't be a jackass and change what you're trying to say after being proved wrong. Anyways I'm done on this thread get what ya want.
How was I ever proven wrong?

You should have took the time to read my post carefully two lines above it I said

Reading that should have been enough for you to get that I wasn't talking about Windows Vista Requirements.

And seriously, do you see me as such an idiot as to recommend 8gb's of memory to run Vista well?

And where have I ever changed anything I've said? Sure I didn't realize until my second post that ATi graphics were unsupported, but every single thing I've said has been the truth and I stuck by it.

If you go onto the website, what tab are the system requirements under?

Oh, thats right, System Requirements...

Stop trying to make me look like the dumb one and post some useful advice.

Instead of the 500 gig drives take a look at Western Digitals 640gb dual platter drives.

Get this mem instead

Newegg.com - OCZ Reaper HPC Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

And just get Vista Home Premium

Don't buy ASUS if you want a p45, get a Biostar. They hold the record right now and they are quality boards.
