Does it really give that much of a performance gain?

I got 2gig of ram so do I need one. My ipod supports it.

it does help a bit. nothing drastic though. vista lite should run well on 2gb. it boots up quite quick on my desktop, possibly faster than xp.im pleased

Weird, the 1990 result is higher than the one in XP. Could Vista be actually faster?

if you look the one in vista is only faster cos of the memory , the processor is worse so it is only the memory that makes the vista quicker which i think is down to the readyboost

The CPU will always be slower on a new OS. It depends on which one though. What's yours?
