    don't ever upgrade to vista. all it is is a graphical upgrade with absolutely zero benefits. and yes ur pc would run slower

    For vista, the important thing is the video card. You need a high end video card, otherwise vista will run slow. Your other components look ok.

    But it is a very bloated system. My windows xp system folder is about 1.5 gb, on vista, the system folder was 9.0 gb.

    I've used Vista, and many of my favorite programs wouldn't work on it, I decided to go back to windows xp (it works perfectly). Right now I compare windows Vista with Ubuntu Linux, there both are interesting and pretty to look at, but at the end of the day I want something that will run my programs and games that I'm use to.

    One thing I did do is buy windowblinds, that has change the way windows xp looks. I can make it look like windows vista, without the bloat. That's the only upgrade I'm doing, until they fix vista so it works as good as xp.
