Re: Upgrade options - your thoughts?
Vista 64bit is fine, go for it, it's really not as bad as people say. And you don't have to run 32bit applications in compatability mode as Vista 64 has the "program files (x86)" folder where it stores all your 64 bit applications. For the GPU, get the new 8800GTS with the G92 chip. Do not buy the older 320/640MB versions of the 8800GTS. The new GTS is about 5% slower than the GTX but it's like £100 cheaper.
