  1. Hi Everybody, I have been using XP since 2002 and i must say it has served me very well, But its gettin old and i have been thinking about upgrading to windows 7. i have been told it runs as good as XP but is everything Vista wasnt and more. I read a couple of reviews and they both said it was worth the upgrade however i always come here when i have techy questions. My question is this: How will W7 run on my rig compared to XP? Here are my specs..

    Biostar GF8100 M2+TE Mobo
    AMD Athlon 64 2.7Ghz Dual Core
    2.00GB DDR2 RAM @ 667Mhz
    Nvidia Geforce 8800GTS
    200GB Seagate SATA HDD

    Thanks to anyone who reply's to my post! :D

    You might need a gb of ram or two in my opinion.

    WXP is not old. It is good, and may remain among the best ever. It is certainly better for most users than is VISTA. Windows 7 will be better, but wait until the third week in September or the Second week in October after all the college student purchases are over. Watch for Windows 7 deals now.
    Save your money on memory and stuff until you can get the one you want with Windows 7.
