    Looking to update my OS so I can run games a bit better. System specs are as follows:

    Intel P4 2.4ghz
    2gigs of ram
    GF 6800 256mb

    I've heard vista is pretty hard on the memory and I was wondering what would truly be better. Is 2gigs enough for vista?

    I'd stick with XP, and put in 4GiB of ram. You can find midrange 1GiB modules in the ~40USD ball park these days.
