Is it possible that I run Mac OS Leopard on, say, the $500 build; or would it have to be Windows?
Yes, it's possible, if you want to go through all the time and effort that it takes, because PCs aren't meant to run a MAC OS, it would be more trouble than it's worth.

If I still have the monitor from an ancient Dell Inspiron 4100 PC, can I use that until i find something better?
As long as the monitor has a VGA or DVI connection, it will work.

finally, will a PCI sound card like this one: http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com...tem?sku=701376 , work in the setup?
Yes, it would work.

It is posted in "General computer hardware and software". It doesn't really belong in the Social lounge if that's what you mean.

Well it depends on how many gigs of memory you have.
Read that for 32-bit
http://www.vistaclues.com/reader-que...memory-limits/
Vista 32 bit limit is 4GIGS OF RAM
It doesn't register as all that because some of that ram gets saved for hardware.
Vista 64-bit doesn't really have a limitation as far as I know.
And if it does have a limitation, its probably low.

Ahh, good to know.
Thanks for the info, I would have definitely maxed out there!

I believe Vista 64bit has a limitation of 128GB. I'm not too sure about this. I just remember seeing that number somewhere. But, you can only go as high as your motherboard's support.

I have read the Upper end None over clockers system build. I have put together some pieces to build a system, and I was wondering if there is a place to post it that someone might take a look at it and tell me thier opion. It has been ages since I built a system and the techno has progressed ALOT.

Just post it in this thread and I can look over it.
What do you need it for exactly?
