    First what is the diffrence betwwen 'unmanaged' and 'managed' C/C++.
    Managed C++ can be written but you have to turn this feature on. Anyway any language that takes advantage of the common language runtime (CLR) is managed code. You have a choice as far as C++ goes but all C# code is managed.

    I have a 5400 rpm on my computer now that I was going to keep)
    That would be a good secondary HD, you don't have to throw it away. I have an 8GB 3100rpm backup and I use it to store a lot of documents and video, but a main 7200rpm HD is hard to beat.

    Third isn't xp profesional a 64 bit OS. So wount there be a win64 api.
    There will be a 64 bit version but there will also be a 32 bit version. The 64 bit version will have a Win64 API.

    I will have no plans of buying any profesinal development envorment's until I start collage.
    No wonder you don't care much for Microsoft. If I had to run Win9X I'd hate it too. The only problem with staying with the existing compilers is that you won't be able to write programs that use Next Generation Windows Services. There is a lot to learn. A programmer is empowered by the new technology. It would be good if a person started to learn about it as soon as possible.
    I compile code with:
    Visual Studio.NET beta2

    When I start looking I'll put a hard drive low on my list, since it is not needed but wanted. Should it out rank a cd burner?

    I don't care for any commpany I use what is best for me. (unless I have to use it) I use this computer since my dad gave it to me. When he brought a gateway, and windows 98 since it came with his computer. The same goes for microsoft office. When there is no real best as in opengl w/sdl or directx I will try both, detirming the best for me. I use borlands free command line w/vide since I it is the best free. If I were to choose between VC++ 6 and builder I would go for bulider, since I don't care if it makes your code pretty.

    Yes, a HD is much more important than a CD burner. But CD burners are not expensive. If you look at DVD burners, than that might cost significantly more, at least at the present time.

    Both VC++6 and Borland builder are uselses.

    one point i must make Witch_King about VC is that the template support is greatly lacking in fact its so bad there almost impossible to use and this leads to a question will the support be better in VS.NET? it might make the C++ compiler part of it worth getting.

    No, you are not allowed to get VS.NET. You have to get something else. I don't think that Microsoft is going to allow you to purchase their software any more. I sent an email to Bill Gates about this.

    So do you agree with this optional list

    1. New hard drive
    2. Burner
    3. Sound //card speakers everything
    {equally ranked }
    3. moniter
    4. Keyboard
    6 anything else.

    I don't know. I don't do it that way. I go out and buy whatever I need. I would think that a monitor would be quite important if you only have a 15 inch right now. I have a 17 inch and find it not too bad to work with.
