    heh, no vista purchase yet.

    KingofFools, home premium will be a good choice for gamers and still have the media center package.

    well, I'm just running 32 bit for now ...

    as far as OEM vs. retail - the only difference is packaging and price: w/ oem you don't get the slick looking black case, but you save 200.00 (I don't think the case was worth all that )
