I'm very happy. I upgraded XP to vista and I didn't have a problem. I chouldn't login into the account but than relized that it was my XP accounts so I just typed in my password and bam it worked. All my drivers where detected

(Onboard Lan / Audio wernt because I disabled them in the BIOS)

god, i hate vista so much. it lags and takes forever to do simple tasks and change little settings. i had vista business installed but switched back to XP. the way i see it, if the machine can handle vista, XP will fly on it.

its a shame that halo 2 is only for vista.

yes it's not bad. However I never tried gamming so I'm hoping not to lose so much frames

I found Vista a very good OS once setup and drivers found

I even played a bit of BF2 and i coudln't tell the difference in frame rates from just playing it


However my Vista Partition screwed up somehow and i cant even boot into it, i know its not the OS i must of looked at some dogey pron sites lol.

BF2 /2142 will not be affected all in term of Framerates, I just experience freezes at random points when playing, it takes 2 minutes to close it by pressing combinations of ALT F4, Ctrl Esc, Ctrl Alt Del...
