very interesting read, I run a vista 64 ultimate 64 bit with CS4 on my reasonable grunty desktop.
Just curious, would I get similar improvements just going to CS5 or do I need to upgrade to Windows 7.
But this might well be a mute point. We recently bought a new laptop for my wife and settled on a ASUS G73 Windows 7, with 12Gb of ram ( 4 gig was extra bonus) and comes with the GTX460M video card.
We choose a Laptop designed for Games to get the most grunt and video card with decent cooling, as she is studying and teaching multimedia she was keen on a laptop. We are going to de-activate CS4 on my desktop and install it on her Laptop, but we are still in the process of setting it all up.
My main question is is the improvement you have seen due to windows 7 or CS5, I was hoping to avoid spending more money at the moment ?
For the "fix " of the video card we found this useful http://www.studio1productions.com/Artic ... ereCS5.htm
