You take the Blue Pill, and we'll outsource your Technical Support to India, the warranty ends, and you wake up with an ear ache. Take the Red Pill, and uh... well, I'm not sure what that one does. Its probably Cherry Flavored though. Mmmmmm. Cherry.

Well that's two of us with new PCs. Got an eMachine with Pentium 4 3.0GHz, 1GB DDR2, 160GB drive (got a 400GB to add to that). Big problem is it's got Vista Home Premium on it. I'll give it a try but at the first sign of trouble I blow it away and put XP Pro on it. Seeing the only reason I'm getting it is for gaming I may have to do that just for them to run. I'll more then likely also add a better video card and more memory to it but that's likely to cost more then the PC itself. I LOVE TigerDirect deals! I'm looking at either a XFX GeForce 8600 GT or EVGA GeForce 8600 GTS. Either of those should make Second Life and World of Warcraft happy.

At the first sign of trouble? That oughta be about, what, five minutes after you switch it on? :D

Yup. Either that or until the first 'update' gets put in as I understand they are known for crashing systems. My only concern is finding XP drivers for all the devices. I hope to know by the end of the weekend.

Good luck! I've heard that "downgrading" from Vista to XP is a real pain.

The reality of it is that you don't downgrade. You start clean. Blow the partition away, set it, blow it away again and then make the final set. I was told it's best to do the double reseting of the partition to make sure all of Vista is gone. From there you just treat it like you put a new hard drive in. What I may do is simply get a new 400-500GB hard drive and do the clean install on that. After all what's a 160GB these days.
