My question now is Vista or Xp. I'm leaning towards Vista because im sure as time goes on more and more people will only have Vista.

Also, if i do get Vista, what should i get for other programs like anti virus?
Should i get Spybot seek and destroy? Any other recomended programs to keep it running good?

Mouse:

I might even get one of those keyboard+mouse packages and get some nicer speakers. Right now that build comes to around $800 (i think)..

Edit: Maybe something like this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16823109156
That's the exact same mouse I got. It's great.

Edit: COMODO Anti-virus and firewall are great.

What anti virus do you use? This computer has Symantec anti virus my uncle put on here. I guess it does pretty good? I'm not sure how to compare it because i've never had any other anti virus programs.
