    Specs:
    21" iMac * 2.8 Ghz Intel Core i7 * 16GB 1333 Mhz DDR3 * 1TB HD *AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512 MB
    The only one that leaps out as being problematic is PeerGuardian. Be very careful of any apps that aren't Snow Leopard-compatible, they can really mess up your computer. Magnifique for instance:

    Magnifique • Portal

    DO NOT use Magnifique on Snow Leopard

    WARNING: DO NOT use Magnifique on OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. It's almost certain that it will mess up your system beyond repair.

    We are planning a complete rewrite of Magnifique once Snow Leopard is released. Thanks for everyone's support.
    As you can see, even a seemingly innocuous third party app can damage your Mac. It could be one reason your previous Mac crapped the bed. Here is a Snow Leopard compatibility list.

    Specs:
    MBP 2.3 Ghz 4GB RAM 860 GB SSD, iMac 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7 32GB RAM, Fusion Drive 1TB
    Vuze has a lot of random bloat and is a memory hog. I would use something else. IE. Transmission.

    Interesting...about Perian because I just downloaded and installed it. It works just fine.

    If you feel unsure about Perian, go for VLC Player. Plays pretty much everything that Perian plugged into Quicktime does.

    Don't download illegal torrents and you wont need PG.
