  1. You know, Windows 2000 has been my favourite OS for nearly the last four years; however, I've been starting to experience some issues with the OS even though it's working "as-is". And now, I can't run *some* of the software that is designed to work on at least a Core 2 Duo processor or better and I found that I've been plagued with some of the compatibility issues over software designed to only work on Windows XP or Vista. With that said, I'm considering moving back to Windows Vista for a while even though the OS is no longer sold and out of Mainstream Support. I found full retail versions (not the OEM or upgrade versions) of Windows Vista Ultimate for under $100 on eBay and Amazon. But this is where I will need your help as I will end up with a semi-new custom build computer. Can you find me a white coloured full tower case and a good motherboard that is still Windows Vista capable, supports at least one IDE connector (if necessary) and supports up to either 16 GB or as much as 32 GB of memory and a graphics card that works on Windows Vista? I will eventually want to migrate my PCI network card and my PCI PCMCIA card over to the newer motherboard as well as long as it still has PCI support. What I find unfortunate is that newer motherboards and graphics cards have even dropped Windows XP and Vista support, I will still have some time left before all support for Vista ends. The biggest problem is budget and funding issues. If I find that I don't have that kind of money to migrate back to Vista, I may have to scrap this idea. Please post your thoughts of which motherboard is good enough to run Vista on and let me know before the consideration becomes a plan.
