    Im going to reformat and install Vista x64 before release(from 32bit XP). Tomorrow hopefully. I purchased a few goodies. 8 gigs of new ram for vista and a new video card since mine is on its last breath w/ temps over 95c of 103c max.

    Hopefully my raptors cooperate in vista RAID0 and i wont partition it 7 times like the failure that it is now.

    Win 7 is quite nice. Technet/MSDN subscribers have the RTM version already. Well worth the money.

    What kind of motherboard are you rocking? I personally hate the 295, they're way overpriced for what you get. Good thing you're upgrading though, those temps are high!
