As for the games, no idea, sorry :hmm: :p



Errr.....there's no point on upgrading to 4Gb of ram if you are using the 32bit version of Vista, as it won't see beyond 3Gb of ram.

If you want your PC/laptop to run slower than it is actually capable of, yes get Vista. Personally, I'd rather use XP, my PC will run up to 20% faster. I was hoping to upgrade to Windows 7 but at its core, it is using Vista code. So, it's not looking good. :(

Unfortunately, I also have Vista. My computer is good, but many games play bad, aren't even able to be played or they go surprisingly good. Funny thing is that game boxes with 'games for Windows' on it, play very bad.

Vista on the other hand seems to be very stable, though. So far, I haven't encountered any problems apart from the games.
