What operating systems can I put on this system? I kind of want Vista on it instead of 7, wise or no? Space isn't a problem and I like Vista's interference better.

Windows 7 Pro is superior as far as security features are concerned. Besides, I don't know from where you can buy a Vista license.

Vista was a mistake by MICROSOFT..
Never install vista. It doesn't universally supports 3rd party and many other problems.
Win 7 is the best option over vista and win 8... You have full driver support, full Diagnose support, windows own security and many other features !

You can on amazon. Either way I just want to know if it will run it. I dont care about the pros or cons, its only a personal perference, I am actually going to run both Vista and 7 on my machine, but with solid state drives, I have no idea if Vista will run them, or run the AMD FX-8350 or the Sabertooth Motherboard, or USB 3.0

yes vista and 7 will run perfectly fine the min specs for vista is a 1ghz cpu and 1gb of ram. Windows 7 is 1ghz processor with at least 2gb of ram. keep in mind you will want at least 16-20gb of free hard drive space for windows 7 and vista. :)

Thank you for the best answer, I was afraid that was going to turn into an argument on weather or not you should run Windows Vista instead of Windows 7, the only thing I like better about Windows Vista is that some of the older games run better on it, as well as the Windows Media Player 11.
