Why, do you see a drop in performance? You could run cpu-z, see if the speeds are compliant with what you bought.

See my sig for the link.

in the search bar, type "dixdiag" with out the quotes and press enter. Vista's built in Direct X tools will make sure everything is working.

Well, when I did that it said no results were found..
Besides, I don't think he has Vista on that machine, why would he be selling it? IMHO.

Did you mean "Run?"

Start, accessories, Run.

Also, make sure you are typing "dxdiag". Celegrom made a mistake. LOL.
