I've got an XP system I built about 6 months ago or so. I want to utilize DX10 with my 8800gtx so now I need to upgrade Windows.

I see a lot of people here pushing to go to 64bit version of Vista. If I decide to go that route, how can I buy it? I only see builder versions at Newegg.

Buy the builder version. Saves you alot of cash but microsoft wont give you free tech support, or a pretty box. Thats the only difference.

With buying the builder version, I cannot put it on another PC if I upgrade, correct?

And also, my PC already has XP on it. Am I going to run into issues putting the builder version (intended for new pcs) on a system that has already been in use?

Thers always ways to use it on more then one PC. MS is picky about both versions. They want there money.

You can format and do a new install of either one. Stay away from upgrade disks. Get full version either way.

Send me a PM if you want to know how to get it dirt cheap.
