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... m 0 l 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. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
