You're gonna need a gaming system just to do email. I just have to say that I think vista will be the most system hoggin bloated piece of crap operating system ever. LINK
But the bright is bits and system stuff that handle what I want to do will be getting cheaper. Oh but don't too long though. When prices go too low things end up going bye-bye.
Jeesh, I wonder what you'd need to play games on vista...
And after a check turns out you maybe covered over at VooDoo. If you get the $6000 and later get vista tell me about the cool transperent windows.
DOH! I forgot that Dell bought Alienware.
