    AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ AM2
    ATI HD 2900XT 512MB
    3GB RAM-2x512 ; 2x 1 GB
    not sure what else I need to know, or HAVE to have but could someone tell me so I can install vista this weekend? thanks

    rest of my specs are in my system specs thing

    Yeah, without hiccups, no problem at all. Any version will do, I am personally going with Home Premium, but ultimate has the most features.

    I just love how ppl bash MS just to look cool with the in-crowd, then they sell out their beliefs.

    So, you hate MS with a passion, you hate Windows, but you like Windows because it's easy to use and better than the competition - but you hate Vista, but you want to buy Vista...

    p.s. both they have the same useless programs(plus some extra for ultimate)....

    BTW, on your current setup with the 4200, Vista will run like a champ. I just think people shouldn't hate things if they don't really hate them.

    His question has been answered, and this thread is just going to devolve into pettiness. Lol, your comment was unacceptable and you have only succeeded in creating a problem. You're extremely close to being banned. There is typically a zero tolerance for people who join just to cause problems. This is your final warning.

    When I ask for people to drop a subject I would prefer it if they did, than I wouldn't have to close threads.

    I consider my posts to have been invaluable. It will encourage ppl to think before they slam something. It's like Algore preaching Global Warming, but he flies around on his Private Jet and uses 10 times the area's average amount of electricity at his home. If you really believe something, and preach what you believe, do what you preach or you'll look like a chumpette.
