    Question 1) Do you currently run windows Vista?

    No. I ran it for a little while around the time it came out, then tried to reinstall at one point and failed. I plan to try again soon.


    Question 2) Does your system run on air cooling, water cooling or other (please state)?

    Air cooling.



    Question 3) How much do you money do you spend on your system per year?

    I try to get hardware by winning it, from work, or in other ways which don't cost me anything. So I end up paying, I'd estimate, about $100 a year, not including buying a new PC every few years (currently about every 3 years). But in terms of hardware value I add to my PC each year, I'd say it's about $500. If you consider the new PC's cost, perhaps about $1000 of hardware a year on average. Though I've recently married, so I have no idea how this might affect my buying plans.



    Question 4) Are you currently running DX10 or plan to in the next 6 months?

    Not currently running. Plan to shortly.



    Question 5) What is your next hardware purchase going to be?


    If you include hardware I'm not paying for out of my own pocket, a DX10 graphics card. If you don't, an additional hard disk (for Vista; in the hope that it will behave nicely and install).

    Yes, but I will be switching back to either WinXP Corp Pro SP2 or WinXP Pro 2007 SP2 x64.


    Question 2) Does your system run on air cooling, water cooling or other (please state)?
    Air cooling (an internal fan inside the case an a heatsink on top of the processor).


    Question 3) How much do you money do you spend on your system per year?
    It changes so much I can't be certain. $0-$500 AT MOST.


    Question 4) Are you currently running DX10 or plan to in the next 6 months?
    Probably, whenever I get a radeon X2k card, and after I emulate DirectX 10 on my Windows XP, which has already been figured out.

    Either a Radeon X1950 XTX or the cheapest X2k card--which at this time, only X2600 is available.
