Hi there,

Your build looks pretty good. For the time being, I think this graphics card should more than suffice. People are reporting very good performance for the $$$ on this card.

Cheers

Hi again,

It depends if you need the extra features offered. In all honesty, Vista Home Basic has more than enough for my needs, although you may like to get Vista Home Premium for the extra eye-candy...

You can read about the differences here.

Cheers
