Talking No Vista Here

I would wait to see if it crashs on people before upgrading from XP. It is usually better to wait until service pack 1 comes out for any of Microsofts Products it seems LOL !!!!

No it's not officially out yet, and yes there's been beta versions available for a long time now. It's official release is supposed to be end of Jan.

You're sytem can definetly run it, and aero (which is a new cool graphics engine). But I wouldn't recommend running it until the first service pack is released.

i wouldnt recommend vista unless you have 2gb of ram, games perform poorly because vista needs so much to run, ive had the real version and its cool but i need more ram
