EDIT: unless you want to play halo 2 and some vista specific games, darn M$!
Dude, Vista only uses resources that the OS doesn't need!
If you read reports and such you would know that
Vista is awesome, i have never had ANY problems with drivers or games and don't regret buying it for a second.
If you plan on getting it, get the 64bit version. No point in getting 32bit now as they will force 64bit in a year or two anyways and drivers are nearly as strong as 32bit as well.
Get Premium, Ultimate is useless and even Ultimate users will admit that. also if you do plan on buying DX10 games it is definitely worth the upgrade anyways.
Also, i don't think you can upgrade from 32bit to 64bit with an OEM.
You have to buy it, you can buy 32bit and 64bit OEM's separately so that you don't have to send away for them.
