They can, but it takes up a lot of your ram in doing that. Graphics cards releave the ram with that stress.

Lol, instead of getting 2 gigs of RAM they should've got a decent graphics card. The FX-5500 is a terrible card.

Aero is overated imo, novelty will wear off after a few days.

yeah the computer prolly didnt have enough ram so it had to use the page file on the hard drive a lot more whichh in effectt slows the computer down to a crawl

Default Re: Vista... to be or not to be?

On Friday I brought Vista Home Premium for my laptop which is an HP Pavilion V6174ea (see specs below) the laptop came with xp media center installed when I brought it in Januarary but vista seems to load up faster then XP did for me! I even have Aero turned on! Windows Update found all my drivers for me and most of my programs work fine some need updates but most run as good as XP or better.

Laptop Specs:

Intel Core 2 Duo 5500 (1.55ghz)
2GB Ram at 667
NVidia Geforce 7400 go 256mb memory (128 dedicated, 128 turbocache).
120GB Hard Drive.
