Microsoft Windows Vista fully available on Newegg

A couple days back, we reported that both European and American online vendors were selling copies of Windows Vista early. The very popular American source, Newegg, was only offering it in three-packs. Now however, they are offering single-packs, and have quite a deal for OEM builders.All the links posted are for the 32 bit version, I found a 64-bit single DVD of Windows Vista Home Basic, Business, and Ultimate.Source: Newegg

Is there any site I can go to that could scan my computer to see if my system can support the new operating system?

I got vista business free from my university about 2 days ago... will probably install it once good security software is available for vista (non-beta versions)...

Preferably I'd use bitdefender with COMODO when they eventually get them out...

Why don't you just put a hardware firewall/router in front and be done with it. Software "security" apps are pointless.

Hackerwise/inbound, you're absolutely right. However, you have to factor in the whole "user error" part of the equation, as a second line of defense. For example. There was this time that I was fooling around with google, and saw an interesting program. Having disabled the turd Mcafee calls virus protection, I clicked the linky. Google gave me a warning saying "this may harm your computer". I thought I was smarter than that, so I without hesitation clicked the link, downloaded, double-clicked the exe....and promptly got two trojans. Took me a good 48 hours to get the first part off, and then there were various remnants that were hidden for MONTHS.

Anyways. The point is that people make mistakes, people get too close to a virus, and people may not recognize a malicious program when they see one. Antivirus, antispyware, and an outbound firewall are good to make sure a user doesn't do anything stupid. However, if you trust yourself, you should be fine with just low-impact AV and a spyware scanner every once in a while.
