    AMD Athlon XP 2500+
    1.83 GHz, 512 MB of RAM

    40 GB HD with 20GB free

    The computer is currently running XP fine, but should I upgrade to Vista??

    If so, which version will run best on this computer??


    Thanks for any help

    It just might but would be REAL slow.
    Have you downloaded the Vista Upgrade Adviser and installed it?

    As for your question MEbeME:
    Vista runs better on 1 Gb ram. The hardware compatability is your greatest issue at hand.

    Also what is the speed of the 40 gig drive? Very noticeable difference with the 7200 rpm drives.

    agreed :D
    Might I add that, a Sata drive has better performance than an IDE 80 pin and an over-whelming improvement over a 40 IDE pin connection. Implement a 7200 rpm speed drive as stated by Bob Cerelli and you can't miss.. :D
    Try this also. This will determine your hardware requirements for Vista. (y)

    Too many words in the title... , i. e., will cows jump [over the moon] ?

    I saw a bovine take a squirt on a electric fence once. It did mooove quick, with much incentive, but it didn't jump.
