MCE 2005 vs. Vista on the new PC?
I ordered up a new Dell (finally!) and have spent a while researching the claims of Vista and NVidia cards going to crap. My ATI x850 works like a champ under Vista; however, many are claiming that NVidia’s driver base is still a bit flaky–even on Microsoft’s own Channel 9.

Now, not to be a naysayer, but the fact that there was.. two sentences of ‘fixes’ and almost three pages of ‘limitations’ and ‘not quite working yets’ is a bit concerning.
