It cost me about $1500.00. The difference is that the Ultimate edition has all the good things about Vista and the Home basic has actually nothing but only the look. Furthermore, I need to run IIS on my laptop and only the Business and Ultimate editions support that. There is a small difference between Business and Ultimate so I have decided to purchase the Ultimate edition so that I am sure that I have the full Vista features and functions.

For games the graphics card is the key element. A top spec at the moment would be two PCI-E x16, 1GB graphics RAM linked together. 4GB of high speed RAM. 10,000 rpm Raptor hard drive RAID array with two to four 500GB or 750GB SATA hard drives. Two quad core Intel processors on a dual pro motherboard. 64 bit XP Pro will leave you much more resources than 64 bit Vista but god help you getting drivers to work. A 16Mb broadband connection will help with online gaming. A good quality 22" CRT monitor will still be quicker for gaming than any TFT flat screen and will give better colours. This spec will also be good for most graphics workstations and will be ten times more powerful than you really need to run normal office software like MS Office. Top games performance demands top kit.
