Firstly, almost everyone says that upgrading from xp is a bad idea and i should do a clean install. This is not an option in my case since i have a lot of programs installed and i dont want to spend an entire week backing up and reinstalling them again.
My laptops config is -
Core Duo 2 ghz
1 gb ram
ge force go 7600 (128 vram)
5400 rom sata hd
The vista upgrade advisor says it will have problems with my sound card and bluetooth.
Will this setup give a reasonable performance with Windows Vista?
I have heard from a lot of people that Vista is super slow and that the nvidia drivers are way too buggy right now.
So with all these comments I am a little afraid to go ahead with the upgrade.
What is your opinion?
First , I think you should try to install it on your machine. And then you will know Windows Vista is worth of being installed or not.
Just take a try.
