good point i actually just went back to xp last night, vista was plauged with extremely long load times, choppy gameplay, sucky sound drivers, and poor linksys drivers, i liked the aesthetic appeal but i'll just stick to xp for now. however contrary to what noosboost said many programs are starting to release vista compatability updates however the extent of compatability is small such as being able to run the program without seeing the stupid this has known compatibility issues in vista, to the program actually working however i myself could not stant having buggy drivers for everything, i'd say wait for sp1 but if your not a gamer and just a casual user you could try vista out

Default Re: Questions for my new PC: Vista mostly

if i get a new system, if i upgrade its now or never (and i am a gamer, just mass amounts of Halo, Diablo II, Halo 2 [when it comes out] Heroes 5 and Dark Messiah) so should i still get it or no?

what Nvidia card compares to the x1900 gt

7900GS and when overclocked the X1950PRO is a better comparison to it.
