KEITH!! how's it going

Well, I would just hold off for right now and stick with 32bit for a little while. In my opinion you should wait at least untill a Service pack for vista comes out to make sure they got rid of some bugs.

Buy a copy of Home. Pro is pretty expensive. By the way what kind of harddrive do you have?
