Yes perp drives are very good. Most people would put them in second place for performance and reliablity right after the raptors.

The numbers I got were accurate. I was just in Office Max looking at Vista, they had a $300 Ultimate, $200 Pro version of some kind, and a lesser version for about $100. The $100 version seemed crappy so that's why I said about $200 for the OS.

Next time, before you decide to be an ass, get YOUR facts straight.

Buddy, its not $200, I did specifically ask for an OEM version. So next time make sure you read the entire thread. OEM is $120, which I might have stated as well.
