My computer is over 4 years old now and I am ready to turn it into a
secondary computer in my home. I currently have Windows Vista Ultimate
installed on it, but because the hardware is somewhat old, I'm not getting a
very good experience with it. With that said, I'm ready to "go all out" with
the designing of my new PC. I am looking for different Windows Vista PC
design guides, but was only able to come up with one at
Does anyone have any additional guides or information on how to build a
Windows Vista compatible PC from the ground up (barebones kit is good too)?
If someone could point me to a reliable manufacturer of Windows Vista PCs,
that would be great too. From what I see now, most manufacturers (even Dell)
have warnings about driver incompatibilities with Windows Vista and that is
what worries me.
