I am way out of date when it comes to computers and capabilities of graphics cards. The last game I played on the computer was counter-strike, nearly a year after it was released. Recently, I purchased a 42" HDTV 1080p and decided to make a computer to play games on and take advantage of my TV. I want to build this computer so it will satisfy my interest in recent PC games. I am aware or games like DC Universe Online coming out along with crysis warhead and fallout. I am aware certain games need vista to run, but I also need help deciding which operating system to use. Is vista better or is XP more "free?" I also know nothing about what else I need to get the computer running. Can someone please help me out and guide me thru this? I have a 300 budget for the graphics card but if I can get away with less, please throw me some suggestions. Thanks!
