Thanks for suggestions. I will get one soon when I have money (dunno whent or what graphics card yet). At the moment I have a radeon 9250 but aero wont work. I will probably buy an nvidia geforce one since I know they are the best.

Thanks to Flexbeta for this:

Microsoft Windows Vista RTM 32Bit and 64Bit AIO

A new DVD of Windows Vista is streaming across the Torrent scene. This new release includes both 32 and 64 Bit versions of Windows Vista all the way from Home Basic to Ultimate. The release is attributed to WinBeta, famous for other All In One Windows product released. The NFO file reveals that though this release includes a "universal" CD Key, it does not provide a way of removing the activation. "Since Windows XP, Microsoft has instituted Windows Product Activation (WPA). This prevents any extended full usage of the Product beyond the allotted time, determined at install. We are NOT providing workarounds or ‘fixes’ for WPA. You are still required to activate your software within this time. While we are aware of possible workarounds in the wild that may work with Windows Vista, we suggest keeping yourself out of trouble. Most release groups will tell you, “if you like it buy it,” we say the same." The DVD is tagged "Microsoft.Windows.Vista.RTM.32Bit.and.64Bit.AIO.DVD.READ.NFO_WinBeta" and weights in at 4.42GB.

Cool, I could see this being nice if you want to try out the different version so figure out which one you want to buy before you actually go out and buy it!

Dont expect it to work for long though!

Pirated Vista May be Useless

"The copies available for download are not final code and users should avoid unauthorized copies which could be incomplete or tampered. This unauthorized download relies on the use of pre-RTM [release-to-manufacturing] activation keys that will be blocked using Microsofta??s Software Protection Platform. Consequently, these downloads will be of limited value," the statement said.
