Since you have vista, picking up another 1gb for ~$30 will do wonders. I tried it on my pc by removing one gb, and i couldn't get it back in fast enough! Vista idles on 6-800mb of ram..

pretty nice upgrade over your old box. my suggestion? get a dedicated video card, that will help you out a lot in games.

Heres a tip, go into control panel/ classic view/ user accounts/ disable User Account Control. That will stop all of the "are you sure..."

I love vista after getting used to it, but i would suggest another gig of ram. Otherwise you would have to pay for another copy of XP

Just wait a couple days and the back up thing will pop up. IT takes 2 DVD on mine or 12 cds? I still didn't get around to making mine yet.

I'm gonna try to trade the old video card even up for a sound card with a gameport on it at our local used comp store on the corner. Thanks anyways.
