    wait a while but check with your motherboard chipset manufacturer & different cards manufacturers to see if they have vista drivers.

    i would only recommend vista if u have 2gb of ram for gamers since vista will steal/eat/crush almost 512 of ram so if u have 1gb u will only have 512 to play

    I have tried the Beta version of Vista (RC1)and I certainly wouldnt use it on its own. I made a dual boot system and used it that way, it is very pretty to look at, but heavy on DRM, so if you into copying anything I'd keep xp aswell.

    Unless someone pointed a pistol at my head, and said I had to install it, I wouldn't install Vista. Even then, I would try to do something to get the upper hand on that person. :)

    Edit due to damned keyboard. :):):)
