  • This contest is being held in conjunction with our sister site GeeksToGo.com. Only ONE prize will be awarded.

I'll upgrade (most likely dual-boot with XP Pro) to Windows Vista once games start requiring it and good drivers for my hardware are released for it.

12007 I already switched to Visa (subscription copy) on one machine, and think it will be awesome once the vendors catchup with new drivers for their products. As a plus it sure is eye candy. :)
