as for me, i use windows xp operating system service pack 2, 256MB RAM, 1.66 ghz amd athlon processor, 40GB hard disk space, 64MB video card, and i have a 17" dell monitor. too bad my specs dont allow me to install games that require at least 512MB RAM such as battlefield..how about you? what are the specs of your pc?

seems that you have a fast enough processor. why dont you try buying the pirated windows version? although the original home xp, the last time i checked, is now priced at P4,000. the xp professional is at around 6-7k.

that was fast enough for you? well i cant install xp on my computer i know xp only runs in optimize 2ghz processor. lower than that leads to a disaster... i notice it.. when i saw my cousins computer her processor was 1.8ghz and the os was windows vista... even you put a giga bite ram it whont runs as fast as youve expected. thats why i used 98se to my computer... i will used xp when i have a new one...

well, i use a windows xp professional on a 1.66 ghz processor so i think thats fast enough coz 1.6 is the minimum speed of pentium 4/amd athlon processors. of course there are alot more faster ones, but for me, since it meets the requirements to be classified as pentium 4 processors, then its good enough for me, even though it restricts you from playing the more "specs-demanding" games. maybe you should upgrade your memory, video card and hard disk size so that it can run on xp.

I use windows vista home premium, 1mb ram (1024mb) memory, 120 gb hard drive, Intel celeron processor 420, with cd player, dvd burner, 17" wide screen monitor. I love my computer, I just got it around xmas due to dealing with a bunch of old computers for years and got tired of messing with them.

which do you prefer, vista or xp? coz last year when vista came out, there were lots of articles on the net saying that its not advisable to upgrade to vista since there were alot of bugs,and it is incompatible with so many programs. and those who are planing to upgrade should wait until those bugs have been fixed.how about you,did vista cause you any trouble regarding your pc usage?

I think Vista is alright. I like XP better actually. It does seem to have a lot of defaults or whatever you want to call them. Like everytime I open a program it asks for permission and this and that. I figure ill use it til when and if it gets really bad then go back to the other if I have to many problems with it. So far I wouldnt say ive had excessive problems with it but just small errors a lot.

I'm using Microsoft Windows XP operating system 512MB RAM, 2k GHZ AMD Athlon, 40GB hard disk space, 64MB video card (Radeon 9550) + 17" LG Flatron monitor. We have very similar computer specs. I can tell you that battlefield isn't as good as you may think it is. I think it's boring ;). Enemy Teritory is still better.

I have this habit of exhausting all possible upgrade before I would switch to a new processor so mine is a bit old. I'm using AMD Sempron 2500+, 512MB RAM, 128MB VGA video and 40+80+80(SATA) GB hard disks. It has 3 boot Win2000, XPsp2 and XPsp3.

It has 7 actually since it has 3 HDD. Each OS contain a different free antivirus. Someday I will try out linux in my XPsp2 boot.

so which is better, win xp SP2 or SP3? do you have any ideas as to how to make my pc read our cd drive? sometimes it reads it, sometimes it doesnt but when it does read the cd drive, it still wont open. does it need replacing or we just have to tinker with the wires? i already tried poking it with a paperclip. it opened a bit alright, but just a little. not enough to inset a cd into it.
