Actually business is $140 and Ultimate is $170, plus S&H, and sales tax since I live in Ca. That will bring the price tag to almost a 3870 or 8800GT or any number of dual core cpus.

Or for that matter how about a quad core phenom?

Here's a 3870 by Sapphire that's ten bucks cheaper than the Gecube

Here's a BFG 8800GT with a $30 rebate dropping it to $170

So just how is it again that Vista is such a good deal and that I NEED to switch over? Again, I what does Vista do that I have to have given my already stated grievances?
