More questions:

What is the easiest way to setup a new build so I can dual boot XP and Vista? I have XP media center 05 to put in the build now. I sent in my upgrade coupon, so I"ll have Vista in 3 months (if I'm lucky...) Is there a way to setup the machine so installing Vista won't be a complete pain and require me to redo all my data?

Thanks.

I think they will just send you back an upgrade to Vista from XP, not a whole new operating system. Shouldn't your files transfer over easily?

Have it partitioned with 50-60Gb or there abouts(maybe more if you play allot of games) for the OS in NTFS and have another partition with the rest of your space in FAT for storage of files.
