    I'm a fresh Windows Vista Ultimate user. Although I don't have a 1000$ PC,
    Windows Vista is working just fine for me with all the Glass, Desktop
    Compositioning and Media Center. It's quite fast on bootup, I can say maybe
    faster than XP(maybe because of the ReadyBoost(1GB usb stick).
    All the drivers were installed correctly and the first time I booted up
    Windows Update downloaded latest versions.
    Here's my configuration:
    Athlon XP 2600+ 1.92Ghz
    512MB of RAM in DualChanell
    40GB HDD 5.200RPM
    nForce 2 MCP
    GeForce FX5200 with 128mb RAM
    Microsoft Wireless USB Keyboard + Mouse
    Canon Bjc-1000 printer
    and 17 inch flat CRT from Philips on 1152x864 at 75Hz
    LG phone that sync with calendar and contacts(nice:)
    and Office 2003
    The BIOS setting are very important: High performance on CPU interface and
    Memory Timigs is a must!!!

    I can't seem to find drivers from nVidia website for my nForce and GeForce.
    If I manage to get some beta drivers I'm sure the performance will go up.
    What about you?

    Thank you for sharing specific details regarding your hardware, it appears
    that your machine is running at its best level, or very near.

    It appears that you have Up Graded your BIOS, if not you might consider
    performing, although, if it’s not broke, don’t repair (RE: Up Date BIOS).

    If the MB will accept additional RAM, for your machine, 1.5 Gig RAM is the
    sweet spot, and 2.0 Gig Ram will make considerable OS performance.

    The Flash Media that you are using for ReadyBoost indeed makes an
    improvement, although, you are below a combined 1.0 Gig RAM, and ReadyBoost
    performs somewhat different from traditional RAM.

    The drivers that you are seeking may never be located secondary to the MB,
    regardless your machine appears to be running among the best, and better than

    Only one caution, approach third party software applications cautiously, and
    use as few as possible, if any at all (you only described one within your
    provided list).

    It is not essential, although increasing the HDD capacity would greatly
    enhance OS performance, frequently a 200 to 300 Gig HDD is advertised for
    under $100 US, without a wish-and-hope rebate.

    Congratulations for a job well done, in respect to your machine !

    Life is Wonderful while using Vista solo !

    1) Where do you get that idea?
    2) So should he, or shouldn't he---or do you even know what that means
    and/or how to do it?

    PS. upgrade, as per the context that you use, is one word. Perhaps you did
    not know this, either.

  4. Oh, come on - that bit was amusing.


    It looks like you have upgraded your BIOS, but if you haven't, you should,
    but as your system is working okay, maybe you shouldn't.

    According to Babbleheadfish, the translation is as follows:

    "You should really do this, except in the case where you should not, in
    which case this may be a case.
    In any case, don't ask me what a case is, because I may not know, just in
