  1. I currently have Windows XP and I am thinking about upgrading to Windows Vista for Directx 10. So I have a two questions on Vista:

    1) If I upgrade to Windows Vista can I go back to Windows XP without having to backup my data?

    2) Are my system specs (as listed below) high enough to have Windows Vista running quickly?
    Asus P5GC-MX/1333 MOBO
    EVGA NVIDIA GeForce 8600GT 1GB DDR2 Video Card
    1GB DDR2 667 Trancend Ram
    Intel Core 2 Duo 1.6ghz Processer
    450W Power Suply
    (Sorry I forgot to post them earlier)

    Thats all I have to ask. Please reply quickly because I only have 2 weeks to decide! Thanks!
