I've got XP installed as well as Vista on my system so I may just play on that, thanks for all the advice and seeing as I got 175 today that should cover the majority

Its like 90 pounds. Don't know where you got the 9 pounds from.

Poud = $2 USD~

More like $1.8 USD now though, due to the British economy failing.

You sure did, the 8800GTS I swear was 95 but I think they made a mistake or it was in some sort of offer becuase now it's 129.99
