Yeah, but my 1gb is working pretty well. Maybe once Ram is a little cheaper I'll add a gig or 2.

I still say you should go with the 8600 GPU. It has got to be compatible with Vista 64 bits with no doub in my mind.

Ok, unless directron is reliable I'll wait a week and see if newegg gets a 64bit OEM. Is directron reliable? Anyone bought from them before?

I have never used their website before, but I wouldn't hesitate shopping there. Looks like a pretty good legit site.

Ok, I'll probably buy it soon. I read some reviews, but my mom still doesnt believe they are trustworthy.

I'm always been a Newegg shopper. Sometimes, I find cheaper deals in-store than on Newegg, lol. The shipping and CA taxes kills me.

Thats why I'm not buying in store, tax will be more than shipping costs.

The OEM software is starting to not look good. if I buy this, and say I upgrade my HD, will I be able to install it on the new HD? Or say I build an entirly new computer in 2-3 years. Will I be able to use this OEM software on that computer?

I bought a copy of Vista Ultimate OEM and its not just a paper sleeve and you can install it just as many times as home can since they revised the license agreement from that ridiculous one that they had before. I bought my Ultimate OEM for about $225 CAN and the Home Premium OEM for about $140 CAN.
