Ok so I'm building a gamign computer, by the time I save up, get the parts(it's expensive, and I haven't written everything down yet) and such, windows Vista will be out for sale. So rather than a painful process of isntalling my old Dell CD's(to avoid the tracking programs for ads and such, and also to have a nice clean version with nothing extra, and prevent errors of sometihng not working once updated) and then "upgrading" it on the windows site, I'll ask, what should I do:
1: Get Windows Vista PREMIUM version, which if I get Vista I will.
2: Just install the CDs that came with my Dell and use Windows XP, it's better.
I am assuming the kinks will be out by the time I need it too, if I decide to use VIsta.
Mostly I am looking for:
Ease of program use. I already have Windows Media Player 11 which I use for music since VLC can't make a playlist and run one after the other. Also, is IE 7 any good compared to IE 6? I basically don't want to listen to the reviews with confirmation because they all say "all of them are more scure and improved" but I can't toally believe that.
Ability to install whatever program I want. I don't want nagging boxes and little things that say it's not microsoft approved,which I heard MS was doing with security systems, making companies pay for the source code to design security systems.
Also, it is a gamign computer. so a major question, what, if at all, is the RAM limit? I'm going to get premium if at all, not business or basic. I realize the RAM maximum for windows XP is, I think, 3,000 RAM, which if Vista is higher that's a major point for Vista.
Anyways, the point is VIsta or XP, I basically want uninterrupted gametime when I'm playing, so no nagging boxes,s owhatever has the least. I also do not want a smaller RAM limit but if they're the same I'll forget about it.
So if someone could give me a few of those Specs, and let me know their opinion, I'd be grateful.
