Ive never played teh original BG but I do have a digital copy from GOG. Is this Enhanced edition worth getting then, or should I just stick to the original and mod it out to make it work better? Though all the mods and fan patches and fixes sound like a bit of a hassle but Ive done that for other games.

Depends. What's your monitor's resolution?

If you've got a low-resolution 4:3 monitor, by all means, play the original. If not, shell out the extra cash for BGEE. There are widescreen modes out there for these games... but they "break" the game by "zooming" out the camera 400 to 800% further than it ought to be, which really hurts the overall experience. If it's your first time through, either play the original at its original display resolutions (800x600) or go for the EE.
