I am a longtime Windows XP Home Edition user and have had overall a great experience with it. Windows Vista is coming out in just a couple days and I would love to get some informed advice from you all here, since you are so knowledgeable. Should I upgrade right away for wait a long while while they iron things out? What should I do to prepare to upgrade? Would it be possible to but another new hard drive and to simply install Windows Vista on it somehow? How would this effect my other hard drives that are currently running Windows XP Home Edition? What version of Windows Vista is right for me based on my user description I listed below? My system is a Pent 4 2.6 GHZ Hyper Threaded, 1 Gig 3200 400 MHZ DDR dual channel RAM, ATI Radeon X1600 512 MB video card, Creative Soundblaster Audigy Platinum 2 Sound Card. I am currently running 3 hard drives (my 4th. crashed on me recently). I will be adding a 4th. again soon. Do I need to do anything special to prepare for when I do upgrade? I heard that it is better to start with a clean install but I really don't want to lose any of the data I already have on my machine. My other hard drives are still running Windows XP Home Edition. I am primarily a gamer and home productivity guy...one of the new MMORPGs I plan on playing in the near future will feature DX 10 graphics and they recommend Vista with a DX 10 video card. Thanks in advance!
