    My home desktop is an ASUS P4S800-MX motherboard w/ a p4 @ 3GHz (800mhZ FSB), 1GB DDR RAM, 40GB IDE HD, 512MB ATI radeon AGP graphics card, and wifi. Before upgrading to vista, im thinking of finding a new motherboard that can support 2 P4's and add another gig of memory while also making my existing hardware compatible. Would you suggest i make such a change or just keep my current settings and just add 1GB more ram and get an SATA HD rather than keeping my IDE drive? I'm open to any suggestions (cost efficient of course)

    Why not just upgrade with the existing system? The only thing that cries out for replacement is the 40gig drive. You don't really need more than a gig for decent performance with Vista.
