dont put it on its **** full stop

No idea but the CPU is good, and ram is ok for it so it should be ok.

Im only a few days into it and not finding any probs with it at all yet. I would prob put 2gb of Ram on it though to help things along

Oh ok so do u have Vista Home Premium running on 1GB of RAM? is it slow multi-tasking or switching between program?

Play it safe, keep with XP for the time being. Wait until SP1 is out.

actually no... :oops: ...vista ultimate on 3gb. Is there much difference between the different versions of Vista? Sorry for straying off topic slightly but it could help the OP in some way

Well yes, Vista Ultimate needs more RAM and 1GB RAM is much lower than 3GB lol. Thx for the help though!

Does anyone else have Vista Home Premium with 1GB of RAM?

it will run fine

It will run okish, Slowish under a heavy load but fine for general internet use etc.
