More about 2150 gaming system final decision
  1. I would skip buying vista .

    We are a few months away from Windows 7 and the RC can be downloaded for free from May 5 . It will work for 13 months .

    Buy a licencse for Win 7 then and forget vista
  2. Whats RC? The beta? And will it be able to do everything vista would be able to do? Plus i like playing older games ( orignal diablo, warcraft 3, starcraft) and i heard windows 7 wont paly those
  3. RC = release candidate
    Windows 7 should play all the games Vista will play and it should play them with higher frame rates.

    Theres also versions of Win7 where you have the option to run a virtualised XP environment .
    That means you should be able to play anything that runs in XP as well .

    On the tomshardware homepage there are news stories about Win7
  4. Do you plan to overclock that i7? The stock cooler isn't the best thing out there...
  5. you SHOULD oc. it is easier these days and give you beter performance. Why not?
    it is too easy my 8years old brother can do it
