But I'm open "Computer" in Windows Vista, the time "Computer" window load completely takes is much longer than that of Winodws XP. It is quite confusing, Windows Vista really take high load on my CPU. (Athlon XP 2268MHz)
On top of probable bugs.. since we don't know how much memory you have, that might be the problem also..
256 probably isn't good.. for testing out Vista, I'd have to say a minimum of 1MB.. 512 would suffice but even then.. 1GB is minimal/ideal.
I'm know the Vista is buggy, But I want know how Vista exhaust my pc, my pc is quite good in Windows XP, and insight the path of hardware evolution in next year. I will look for Athlon X2 3GHz and X950 at first time.
MS's site is very quiet about the graphics requirements to run the full Aero display model (or whatever its called...) They say minimum requirements for Vista are a 32meg card, with comments that 128 is required for high res. But they don't say much about good performance requirements.<A HREF="http://www.microsoft.com/technet/windowsvista/evaluate/..." target="_new">MS Technet</A>
