I'd also like to hear some experiences with vista. I'm considering geting it but im weary because my roomate has had trouble with his, but his computer won't be as good as mine so that may be a issue. If I do decide to get it I'd probably go for the 64-bit version. On that note I want 4 gigs of ram to run it.
I'd like to buy these parts in the next day or two if possible.
So far looks like the total is around $885. Pretty close to my budget but I took some of the cheaper picks for ram and cooler that you guys suggested. Am I missing anything else in this setup or is that about it? Really thankful for the help btw.
