    Microsoft is still working on the grading system and declined to provide details, other than noting that "the idea behind the Windows Performance Rating is to help average consumers easily understand their Windows Vista PC's overall performance, and to simplify the process of determining whether certain software applications will run smoothly based on their system components."

    Cnet had a good article on this as well:
    Will your PC keep pace with Vista? | CNET News.com

    Ive heard Nvidia is planning on putting out a budget DirectX10 card in March. Might be worth the wait.
