I've pretty much decided that I am going to probably get Windows Vista Home Basic 32-Bit soon for this PC:
-AMD Anthlon 64 X2 4200+
-2GB (2x1GB) DDR2 RAM
-MSI 8600GT OC Twin Turbo
-400GB SATA HDD
I built this computer recently and have been using XP on it till I was ready to upgrade to Vista. Recently, I saw a ad for Home Basic OEM for $49.99 which is a pretty good deal in my opinion. I was originally going to get Home Premium, but with that being around $99.99, I can't really justify spending around $50 for Aero (basically a slick Windows theme) and maybe Media Center.
Anyways, my question is that I have been using my old Dell Wireless 1180 USB 1.1 (yeah it's old) B adapter from my old PC on this one. I am wanting to know if I can install this external card and use it with Vista. I have the XP driver, but I am not sure if it will work. I remember trying Vista Beta 1 I believe out on my old PC and it wouldn't work (but that was Beta 1). This is the card: http://www.iwacstores.com/40194,auct...uction_details
So, do you think I will be fine with that?
If not, is there a cheap, good one you recommend? Maybe from Best Buy since I got a $10 gift certificate there? Also, if you do recommend one (given that my current one won't work), would you recommend a USB or PCI adapter and why?
