    If you're not doing complicated networking, and dont need advanced features for networking/enterprise computing, such as multiple users and such, Home is fine. The Home and Pro kernel are the exact same, just different features. Nothing worth spending another 100 bucks on.

    oh i was thinking, would it be better overall if i initially spent my money on getting a new geforcefx 5900??

    do you think that would give me the best one step performance gains? or should i stick to upgrading my memory and hdd? :wow:

    OK, stop thinking!

    I'm absolutely certain that a new and wonderful video card would in no way mind waiting for data any more than your CPU does now.

    Being as most of it's life-cycle it would do nothing more than sit there idle while waiting for instructions to process it should run remarkably cool.

    No performance gain would be realized to any decent degree though it would certainly be a higher grade of video card and certainly an upgrade to what you currently have.

    It would give you some bragging rights no doubt. However you might not want to tell them it's installed it a PC that is crippled in the ever-so-important department of moving the 1's and 0's around.

    I guess you need to make a decision here;
    Do you want performance, or just some hardware you can brag about?

    Get the other stuff first, one you get those running well THEN, if you want, get a new video card. A9800 Pro would be the best, they're faster than a 5900 anyways.
