PostSubject: upgrade? Vista   Sun Nov 23, 2008 1:42 pm

Just installed another 250gig HDD (western digital) into my PC (I'll post the specs at some point!).

Onto that HDD I have installed VIsta 64bit ultimate (dual booting with xp that i already had!)

install was very easy, only GFX and speakers needed driver downloads (ATI radeon 1950pro / logitech Z10 usb speakers) all very easy.

Now i just need to get used to Vista and get the settings tweaked for my liking!

Current vista rating is 5.0 (let down by my processor apparently! (its an E6320 core 2 duo) not too bothered as It runs at 17c normally so i have loads of room to overclock if it became an issue!

I used to run Vista 32 a bit back and it made me sick.. hated it and went back to XP. Recently built a new rig and put Vista 64, HUUUUGE difference.. I find it very likable now.. it's fast, looks good (reminds me a bit of linux). still have little nags about it but nothing serious. My system gets a 5.9 in it.

Personally I think M$ should look in to releasing specific OS versions to suit the users main task.. e.g. gamers get a stripped version of vista with streamlined programs made specifically for gaming etc.. they did try to do something similar but basic, enterprise and ultimate or all based around the system you have rather than the tasks you use it for..
