Default Vista

I have like the lastest build for vista, and I am considering trying it on out I was thinking of setting up a dual boot. I would use my 320 SATA when it comes back. Any suggestions reviews etc

How is vista with games etc.

It'll be fine with games.

Just set it up as a dual boot. You won't loose anything unless you do something incredibly stupid

Well, It's a P4S800D-X, GFX 5200, p4 3GHZ...you know.

Well, the thing comes from software issues with my video card, I am sure. My AMD system, equuiped with a Geforce 4 and SAME OS, won't do that.
