Vista or XP? - My gut is telling me XP!

I would personally go for XP it isnt going to be discontinued tomorrow and plus you can get a legal copy off ebay for about £30 if you buy carefully. So save some money on where you buy from in the end and get the OS before you buy and customise your chosen PC sans OS.

Are you planning to buy a whole box or build it yourself? It isnt very clear.
