Default Re: Vista and gaming?

Makes me wonder how many people will have an illigal version of Vista.

I'm gonna buy it. I'm through dealing with WGA and all that crap, I would rather save up the money to buy it legally and be happy with myself.

Well, I dont have any illigal OS's on my computer (other then coperate >.>) and I just want to try and get one myself. Althoug this one might be so powerfull, that there is no way for anyone like us to get it.

Any idea on the price?

Alvino - why? You'll end up needing a new motherboard and monitor, all the music you have will have to be from your own PC, and the same with any videos, and it'll basically tell you what you can and can't do.
