Regarding my "new computer needed" comment...(considering I am a gamer, which most TechForum members are, and many computer users)... am I wrong in saying that Vista supports DX10 and for DX10 you'll need a new video card and that video card and the games you want to play will require at least 2 Gbs of ram and that video card will require an larger power supply and these new DX10 games will need a faster processor and if i am needing a faster processor than I need a new motherboard and at this point I would say this IS a new computer....
..now all you geeks who have a 6 month old or newer C2 system are fine....woopee for you...
..but cheapass guys like me who spent enough coin on a Prescott system 18 months ago don't want to spend all there paychecks on a new system every year...
Ive never blamed Microsoft here...in fact im using them right now...i just wont spend $200-300 for an OS right now that wont benefit me...why the **** would I? If you dont game and find all the new fancy features make your business or daily emails and forums more useful than, by all means support Vista right now...personally I'm gonna wait a while, til prices drop, kinks are worked out and other related features (DX10) are in black and white, not a pale opinion of people who have jumped the gun for bragging rights...
