Microsoft® Windows® XP Home Edition

Its pretty good, im guessing this is not a completely custom built computer, as you are talking about the free bundled software that comes with it and all, hehe. Thanks for not posting link for each piece of hardware also, if you post what the thing is, we will know.. much easier.

If you do decide to customize it more, you would be able to choose better brand name ram, PSU, and those little details that make the difference between an average pc and a good pc.

My current specs:
i7 920
Biostar TPower x58
3x2GB g.skill
XFI GTX260 Black Edition
640 WD Caviar Black
Vista Home Premium x64
