truth be told, i don't see vista in my future, it will limit my benchmark scores, and makes gaming harder... even tho it has dx10

i only have it for dx10. otherwise id stick with xp which is what i do, i have vista on a sepreate hdd and xp on another. I also hate office, waste of £300 if you ask me. the most annoying this is if you make a document on it and try and use an older version of office its un-compatable! arhhhhgghhhh! the list of how annoying microsoft are can go on forever
