okay, fine. If you think the information i give you is crap, then you won't like any of my recommendations for a powersupply. So be it. You can do your own research and learn from your own mistakes.

Whatever. You can either upgrade and spend lots of money while getting a subpar experience with Crysis, or you can completely start from scratch and have an awesome experience. Up to you. The fact is that you're going to spend a lot regardless if you upgrade or build a new computer.

Hey, it's your gaming experience, not mine. No one is shoving a gun in your face and telling you to build a new computer. If you want to waste money upgrading, no one is going to stop you.

You might want to chill on Vista for now. It is not a fan of 3D gaming, or at least on my machine. XP will work fine, just hold off on Vista until DirectX 10 comes out, that is, if it ever does....

ummm...with Vista comes DX10...I have no idea what you're talking about. Its the games that don't have DX10 implemented.

If you do get a high powered card, it will be dragged behind by your cpu. It is going to be a crazy bottleneck.

Yeah, Vista comes with DirectX 10. You just need a video card and game that implements the API in order for it to work.

That's the unfortunate thing about computer technology. The flow moves faster than you can cope with. Build a rig, a few months later and it's obsolete.

Its cool. Don't worry about it. But really, you can build a very nice computer for a little bit of money from scratch.
