Ok, that's good to know. the warrenty won't be a problem, it is already over, and I have already changed some things in there.

I wouldn't even worry about this issue for another 8-12 months. Longhorn beta isn't coming out until sometime during late Q1 - Q2 in 2005.

That's like three processors and two technology changes away. Who knows we all might be running 128-bit processors and 64X PCI Express Video cards but the time Longhorn is released.

I wonder if Longhorn will be released before Half-Life 2 or Doom III. Hahahahahaha!!!

Compared to most Alphas; Longhorn is very stable. Most Alphas aren't even released to developers because they are so unstable.

Lol; maybe. That would be quite interesting. But as intel 64-bit is only coming out a little before Longhorn; I doubt 128-bit Processors will be on the market. Maybe 64x AGP.

I would reccomend at least 1024 MB RAM probably but you could deal with 512 and you absolutely cannot run it on a 32 bit processor almost impossible but 64 are going to be released by 2006 as probably standard.


Thank you to all people in these forums I have now reached 100 Posts!
