    I Installed Vista one my best pc out of 3
    Its pretty good it has:
    3.4ghz P4
    2gbPC3200
    512mb X1900XTX

    Now I need someone to tell me how would vista run under my other PC's or If I should just leave XP but I love vista now:
    PC 1:
    2.4ghz P4 no HT
    1GB DDR1 Ram
    256mb Geforce 6800GT

    Will it run vista how well?

    PC 2:
    933mhz Pentium 3 256kb Highspeed L2 (Coppermine Model) from 00
    512mb Pc133
    Radeon 9600se
    60gb HDD 7200rpm Ultra ATA/100
    How well will it run I know by doing the online test thing it said that all of my PC's could run vista but how well? Or is it just worth leaving Xp Pro on the other 2?

    Vista will run just fine with the first two (P4 3/2Ghz)...though you will not have DX10 capabilities on any of them until you get a DX10 video card.

    The third (Pent3), you can, but I'd recommend staying with XP. You'd have to spend too much time disabling all the 3D crap (aka enhancements) Vista uses.
