Question: I found out that my computer is running a non-genuine copy of Windows XP. Microsoft says that I've to pay $149 to make my copy genuine.Now I'm wondering should I go and pay Microsoft $149 or should I upgrade my computer(these are the current specs: AMD 64-bit 3000+ processor, 512 MBs of RAM the computer was built by a friend of mine and is using an ASUS K8V-X SE motherboard and 80gig hard drive) to Windows Vista Home Premium fo $90(note:it's $90 because I'm a college student)+ the cost of upgrading a computer to run Vista. My Question is 1)can my computer with 2gigs and its current processor run Vista? 2)Can a bootleg XP upgrade to a certified Vista?3)Should I just forget upgrading and fork over the $149 to keep my current OS or4)Should I go out and but a completely new computer that isn't a Dell with windows already installed? Any comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated
