I ran the first 2 betas, was not impressed, might be time to dump a $1000 or so in the PC to run it. 10,000 RPM hdd, 512MB graphics card, 2GB of ram and a 3.8ghz or so proc should be able to run it better

Since I always run one operating system behind. I can say I am so looking forward to vista being released so I can finally upgrade from 2000 to XP!

I really want to install this on one of my systems but the thing is as soon as that build expires you are left with having to reformat your computer again.
