Actually I disagree with that...my other system is running Vista Ultimate with 1GB Ram. It's not that much slower (if at all) compared to my other system with 2GB ram, and running same OS. It's for family use + some light gaming.
1GB of RAM with Vista is, IMO, just asking for trouble...Vista utilizes more RAM than XP does and the general rule seems to be a minimum of 2GB of RAM for routine performance.
I built my first computer a while ago (hamluis knows) and installing the CPU isn't diffucult at all. All you need to do is remove the heatsink (the CPU cooling system), change CPUs, re-apply the silicon for transfering heat, then install the heatsink back.
if I need to, how difficult would it (CPU) be to upgrade?
It might be some background apps such as antivirus...maybe check task manager to see what it is?
As with another post I have seen my CPU usage up to 100% and can not figure out what could be causing that as I do not believe it's my printer since I wasn't using it at the time.
