Do a search for Microsoft Vista and see what you can find, the basic edition is not all that great looks wise I am led to believe it lacks things such as the Aero interface.
Heres a start click here easy, just google for windows vista and there it is.

Interesting quote from that page "To fully experience Windows Vista, Microsoft® and other industry experts recommend using a PC that is 10 times* more powerful than those required by previous generations of Windows."

wolfie3000 I'm away to look at it now but it convinced you to get it? You're a gamer, what are you going to do if you find some of your games won't run? I think its far wiser to leave it a few months until any problems are hopefully sorted.
Are you really going to buy it now?

  wolfie3000 12:10 30 Jan 2007

Yep i am going to buy it as soon as i can,
The reason? Halo 3.

My whole clan is upgrading to vista so we can get Halo 3.

wolfie3000 I might have guessed. Now you mention it I do recall that you mentioned Halo 3 and that it was going to be Vista only.
I only hope that your other games still run.

So do i,
My main worry is that the first ~Halo game plays on vista,
I will be in tears if it doesnt.

FAO wolfie3000 according to this site click here, your games will work, just may need a patch.
