First i was thinking about going with a 64 bit OS, but i don't think i need more than 3 gigs of ram. Also i do not want to go through the mission of finding all those drivers, and updates and stuff. So I'm going to stay with a 32 bit. NOW I'm not sure if to choose
Windows Vista Home Premium 32-Bit $99.00
Windows Xp Professional Sp2 32-bit $134.00
The problem is i know Xp Pro is better at least for right now, but 30 bucks is a difference i do not want to pay. Second of all EVENTUALLY vista is going to get better. I do not want to spend $134.00 and then spend another $99.00 upgrading to Vista. Also Vista has Direct X 10, and i heard that its a BIG DIFFERENCE, from DirectX 9.
Here are my PC Components. AMD Athlon x2 dual core 6400+3.2ghz black edition. 250gb hard drive, 2gb ram, XFX 8600 GT 512mb, and a GIGABYTE GA-M57SLI-S4 AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard.
Tell me what you guys think.
