I Swear Vista Kind Of Sucks

So I bought a new computer and it only has 1gb of ram which is expandable to 4gbs. It has 4gbs of memory now and man I look it up and it ate all of it. I don't even see any major difference whatsoever. I multi-task a lot too. I hate Vista right now. And owning a pre-made computer...sucks. I just had to buy one a.s.a.p. because I fried my motherboard on my 4 year old computer. Hehehehe. ph34r 512mb NVIDIA ONBOARD GRAPHICS! Next stop...new video card. Probably just a mid-range one...since I don't play a lot ever since my family moved to the U.S.A.

Anyone here with Vista too? I mean when XP first came out, I hate it too so I'll probably love this one as time goes by. it's such a memory hog!

have checked what processes are running in the background? always handy to know what is running and how much mem/cpu it is using.

I have vista and the only problems I have is [rage]THE FUCKING OS WONT INJECT ANY 1.6 FUCKING HACK[/rage] also WMP 11 for vista doesn't have some of the right audio/video codecs so some files don't play which sucks too. I'm thinking of dual booting with XP sp2 though.

I'm just fine with my XP and I don't plan on changing anytime soon. Especially considering many Steam / CS related things don't yet work w/ Vista.

I did have vista but turned back to legend XP =). Vista is a pile of horse shit to be honest. i had a gig of ram and ate half of it idle. But when i switched back to XP which it self was a nightmate trying to find drivers for my new comp my FPS doubled and tripled =D with my Ati x1950xt and Intel dual core. Will hate vi$ta for life. XP FTW

It will it most of your ram but it will free it up again when you need it for something that's not related with the O/S at all. I have 4gb of memory and it ate all of it.

i have 512MB of RAm and ran Vista on it, it only used a consistant 70ish% at idle!!! vista does suck, because the spec of the pc required is just too high!!!!

Oh well I have no idea how you got it working Vista has different offsets to XP.. PM me what to change kinda strange because CS: Source runs ALOT smoother than 1.6 currently for me.

If you upgrade to Vista you should upgrade your system hardware too or at least read the system requirements and recommendations.

Yessir, Vista sucks the left and right testicle.

I installed vista after having a ton of virus over-take my WinXP, So I thought hey, I'll give WinVista a go. So I downloaded it off my server, Made the bootable CD and installed.

Runs like shit, Well over system specs. It might only be worth installing when SP1 Comes out.

Vista is still new. No one takes that into consideration when comparing it to XP. XP was released in like '02 or something, it has many more security fixes and such. Vista, just like XP, had problems when it came out.

But the thing is, i doubt vista will need less ram and less better system. Micro$oft i think dresigned it probley to there specs with there quad core and sli 8800's with water cooling as standard not forgetting there 8 gig ram lololol. Vi$ta i think will always need high specs. come a few years im sure it'll be better but im staying with XP tbo after having not one good experiance with Vi$ta.

I have a dualboot with XP & vista, Tried vista 3 times and just /quit due to buggy mouse accel with my MX518 and crappy performance in my games.

Well yeah you get that most people don't realize if you upgrade to Vista you probably should upgrade your hardware too. For some strange reason though CS:S runs 'alot' smoother on Vista for me know and I don't really understand why ever better than 1.6

Personally, I think XP is MUCH better than vista... I think its hard to make fast progress with vista, because of those slow graphics and stuff.

I have both Vista and XP on the same machine. I have multiboot, so i just choose which version i want to load =). no probs what soooo ever so far.

Theres nothing you can't do on XP that Vista can. I've gone back to XP and my computers performance and ingame FPS have increased dramatically, XP FTW.
