Do I get any advantage when I upgrade to vista?? More about : benefit changing vista aevm January 26, 2009 2:53:43 PM Don't. Your computer will choke on Vista, even after the upgrade the nVidia series 6. Sorry... aevm January 26, 2009 2:55:38 PM BTW, Vista has DirectX 10 but you won't benefit from it unless you buy a 9600GT or other DirectX 10 card. So again, no serious benefit there from Vista with your setup. You'd also need 4 GB of RAM for decent performance under Vista. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer seffaulmino January 26, 2009 3:20:15 PM OK!!! then I guess I won't , maybe after when I get a job, I'd be able to buy myself a good computer... ^_^I'm only 17 years old, still in college, so still have to learn much more!!! thanks a lot!! also, about the installing it, I was hesitating because I knew that I can only get major advantage in vista by having more than 4GB of ram ^_^ Can't find your answer ?
