Do your research, you "may" want to wait

Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit for System Builders
Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit for System Builders

Pros: It's Microsoft's latest. Alot of nice features. I had no real problems installing or updating. I believe it is more stable. I've only been running it a month, so far I'm not dissappointed. If your happy with XP you will like Vista. DO YOU RESEARCH! Newegg is the only place to get your computer needs.

Cons: It's Microsoft's latest. 32bit will not recognize beyond 3Gigs of ram. It's a bit of a pain in the *** (more of an annoyance) to update drivers and other software. DO YOUR RESEARCH!

Overall Review: I built my computer a little over a year ago. Started with XP, planned on updating to Vista. I bought a second HDD and did a clean install with a dual boot configuration. I did a lot of research and it all went pretty much to plan. My only regret is not getting the retail version so I could try both 32 and 64bit. DO YOUR RESEARCH AND PREPARE! I think most who are having problems are not prepared and have not checked for compatability. I'm not a gamer. Asus P5B-E, 6400 Core2 Duo, 4Gigs GSkill, 2-WD250 HDD Sata

Decent Monitor

Pros: Nice monitor, no dead or stuck pixels. Good for the price. Very good display when plugged into DVI.

Cons: You have to buy a DVI cable separatly. It took some messing around with VISTA/NVIDIA drivers to get it to work on the DVI port. It worked right away on the D-SUB port, although the display was a little streaky vertically. Requested assistance from Envsion and got "NOTHING"

Overall Review: I bought this to run with another LCD of similar size in a dual monitor configuration. Overall I am pleased, but it was a real headache to get it set up in VISTA. Worked right off the bat in XP (I have a dual boot configuration). I would buy this monitor again. It "may" not be plug and play in VISTA but, I don't think it's the fault of the monitor. Be aware that you may have to uninstall and update your drivers to get it working with VISTA/NVIDIA, especially on the DVI port. I just can't quite give it five eggs mostly for the hassles I had.

Pros: A good monitor for the money

Cons: One stuck pixel about 3" above and left of center.

Overall Review: This is my first LCD. and overall I'm happy with it. The stuck pixel is really only noticable within a black or blue area. I can't really notice it otherwise.
