You can get a trial version of 64-bit Windows XP off the Microsoft website.

Right now, Vista requires high-spec machines, say, a video card with at least 64MB of dedicated memory, 512MB RAM, and a 1.5GHz K8 or equivalent CPU. At least, i think that's what i read.

So you might wanna go for 64-bit XP instead. Vista's gonna have a stripped-down appearance though, last i heard, so...well, it's up to you to balance the stuff out.

There are more and more 64-bit compatible apps coming out too. I think there's quite a few 64-bit AV programs available right now.

Windows XP Pro 17" LCD Monitor (1280 x 1024)
nForce3 250 Chipset Athlon 64 2800+ w/ C'n'Q
1 x 512MB DDR400 CL3 SDRAM 40GB IDE 7,200rpm HDD (8MB Cache)
nVidia GeForce MX420 64MB PCI On-Board Audio
