Hi guys i think it's about time we have a forum just for this new car?

anyway - just to say it's possible and you should install your vista upgrade as a dual boot along with you "old" XP BECAUSE - no matter what the upgrade advisors say, there WILL be hard and software that turn out INCOMPATIBLE (well put it this way - crucial functional problems) that was thought to be compatible and give you irreparable headahes esp if you overwrote your "old" xp. i'm glad i didnt "upgrade".

but i must say the graphics are awesome

Hi there I have just upgraded to vista and I haven't had a single problem with drivers. My pc is only like 2 weeks old though. The only problem I had though was that I had to download a different audio driver but Vista gave me a link to realtech's website and it gave me the exact drive. All in all I think that vista is ok.
EXCEPT: the cancel or allow things they really annoy me constantly its winning at you if youw want to do all of these differant things lol
