  2. Hi Shane,

    It will run, yes. Will it run the way your XP runs? No. If you're into gaming and you run Vista on that machine I think you'll have a few issues. If you really want to upgrade to Vista I recommend you upgrade the processor which most likely means a new motherboard, and probably new ram (I'd get at least 2GB), and you're going to want a DX (Direct X) 10 card I would think since you like to game. Yeah, in my honest personal opinion your better off just buying or building a new box. You'll want SATA or SATA2 drives, and the rest of the stuff I listed above. Also, if you want to run the Aero interface you'll want to upgrade as well. So yeah, bottom line is you're best bet is to get a new machine.

    I ran Vista Beta on my P4 2Ghz with 1GB of ram and it worked...but the gaming thing kind of throws it off.


    Hmm looks like im gonna stick with Xp then until i get a new computer then....My comps starting to show its age :D

    I heard you cannot play dx9 games in vista.

    No it cant be....Im sure you we be able to play DX9 games on a DX10 card.

    Im actualy saving up for a new pc anyway...But i wont be getting it yet because i want to see what AMD come out with now that Intel have those beefy Core 2 duos and soon Quad core.

    So AMD must make something better soon.

    Im not a AMD fan its just that ive mostly only had AMD systems.

    Only ever had 1 Intel Pc :D

  3. Yeah well obviusly its totaly up to you.

    I mean personaly i think the looks & are much better in seperate sections because its easier to use and help people

    But if thats how they like it thats fine.

    Actualy now thinking about adding all those sections i mentioned....It could make the forum realy long.

    Like you would be scroling down the page for 5 mins before it comes to the bottom of the forum :D

    Either way the forums still great.:thumbsup:

  4. Hello people,

    I have a suggestion,Now forgive me if this has already been suggested before but i think it would be much better and easier to use if you had a Seperate Operating Systems section.

    Like for example:

    Operating systems

    Windows Vista

    Windows NT/2000/XP

    Windows 95/98/Me


    Apple Macintosh

    Do you understand what i mean?

    So if people need help with Windows Xp then they can post it in the Windows xp section instead of posting it in the " PC Support " Like i have had to do with a post for vista just a few minuites ago.

  5. Hello people,

    Im gonna be getting Windows Vista Ultimate when its released.

    How well do you guys think it will run on my system?

    My computer specs are in my sighniture.

    I know my comp is quite outdated now but its played everything ive thrown at it.

    Ive ran the Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor and it said my comp passed to run it so...

    What you guys think....Also will Vista be ok for gaming on?

    I play alot of games.

    Thanks :thumbsup:
