Right now, my most immediate goal on it being up to playing is FFXIV ARR, so I do have some time. As a downside, unless there's a way to legally use my current comp's windows on a new one, I'm going to be stuck buying that, though I do have a sister who is a student, so I should be able to get a student copy.
Edit: And let's be honest, I'm running Vista right now. Probably time for an upgrade anyway.
