For pure gaming I would probably go for the cheapest version that's out (but one which can support multiple cores/processors). After all, you won't be using Aero, Media Center or any of that shabangle if you are gaming. ;)

EDIT: Or do you mean RC1, RC2, etc!

The cheapest version of Vista Home is limited to a low resolution only.

the pro and ultimate version,as i have xp pro and only can upgrade to these versions,if i get home ,i would need full vasta home version
so which ever is better for gaming .either pro or ultimate

Home Premium and Ultimate are the ones people like us will want. The difference between HP and Ultimate right now isn't that big (basically it just has the Business features in it, which are useless for normal users) but that may change depending on how many "Ultimate Extras" Microsoft make after Vista is properly released.

So I wonder what these "ultimate extras" are going to be. Must be pretty good stuff if they need to get people to fork out that bit extra to upgrade from Home Premium...
