Yeah, it's the custom I currently have, and might be upgrading a couple parts next month.

If you have a .edu email then you can get 7 for about $30 (from what I heard)

Default Re: Random Chit Chat

yesterday I bit the bullet and am giving ubuntu another shot on my laptop. So far everything it going ok. It took me a while to find codecs to make all my music and video play though. Now I find myself using ubuntu more than windows when I am not gaming. Some people say that they won't try ubuntu or linux in general because they need certain programs to do things but I find there is an open source equivalent to just about everything. I use mozilla songbird for music which is an itunes clone with ipod support. Gimp for photo editing, Openshot for video editing and open office for office stuff.
Now if only there was a way to make my games work like GTA IV, Farcry 2 etc but I haven't found a way yet. I think running them in wine would make the performance suffer if they would even work at all.

Yeah, I got the 32-bit with that offer. I would do it again, but sadly it ended back in January. I have friends with e-mails that doesn't want to get it, so I can use their e-mails if I wanted to get more.

Wine might work for it. You should also check out Cedega. They have a free trial.
