agreed with an51r, just wait it out, just cuz you got money, doesnt mean spend it.. ignore the benchmarks for now... make your decision later on, your build is fine for now... just get yourself a new gpu for dx10 and pick up a water cooling kit for it

Lol, so I just learned that possibly only the Ultimate Edition of Vista is going to be able to run multi-socket CPU systems, while every other version is fully capable of running Intel's single-socket Quad Core. So not only do you have to buy a super expensive motherboard, two processors, but also a $400 OS?

GG AMD, GG.

Lol, spoken like a true fanboy, Keyser. And no, it won't be worth it. No more than the $160 upgrade to Vista Home Premium that 90% of educated users will be doing. Ultimate has no option for an upgrade, so you get to shell out the whole $400 for it. Too much for a Windows OS.

And you cannot pirate Vista. Microsoft severely cripples any pirated version of the software. Unless you want to never go on the internet or install any security upgrades (imagine XP without SP1 and SP2), you won't be able to get it for free. Sucks for you, huh?

there will always be someone out there who will find a way around paying for it.

time to go back to school! my old college had a deal with microsoft to get software cheap, office xp for 10 bucks was a great thing at the time. doubt youll be able to get vista for 20 bucks..but anything less then 400 is a deal.
