There are, however, a few things that don't work with it (TAGES copy-protection, for one), and it might not be worth the hassle for you. On the other hand, if you buy Vista now you'd be looking at shelling out *again* for an upgrade to 7 (I suspect sooner rather than later, too)...

    I seriously doubt the retail version of Windows 7 will be retail until nearer the end of the year.

    There will be several beta release before it.

    Its almost £30 more expensive than it was 4 months ago and not a £100+ PSU.

    This if wanting a similar price but an overall better unit: http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/625W-...uard-SafeGuard
    How is it better?
