The only issue with memory and not booting is when you first install. You -sometimes- but not always have to pull all but 1 stick of memory until you update fully.

There has been known issues with 4GB and installing Vista. IT is recommended to take it down to 3GB or less till you get fully updated with SP1.

There is more to Vista than just DX10....

id stick with XP if you want better performance from your machine. building a high spec machine and putting vista on it is like building a high spec machine and then intentionally making it a bit worse for no good reason.

stick with XP.

you COULD be one of those cool kids and use a linux distro, but i wouldnt recommend it.

There is nothing wrong with running Vista. I do it with no issues at all. Please do not come by here and get the XP/Vista wars going again. They jsut stopped. You are entitled to your opinion on Vista. But coming in and bashing Vista is not going to happen. I have already asked several to stop cause it has been 18 months now. Time to stop with the complaints. Thank you.
