I have a Pentium 4 Desktop that is currently running Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 3.

The OS itself is also beginning to look dated, and it has far more security holes in comparison to the new Windows versions.
I was thinking about upgrading to Windows 7 Home Premium Edition, but I was worried about the performance. The current system has a 3.0 GHz Pentium 4 w/ HT, 1.5 GB of RAM, and a 160 GB hard drive (soon to be replaced with a 250 GB one). The graphics card is an ATI Radeon 9200 series. Will Windows 7 performance be in line with Windows XP on this setup, or will it be noticeable degraded? Let me know your thoughts!
If you're windows xp is working fine and meets all your needs in your computer works I suggest stick with it until this damn windows 7 is perfected.
I have two laptops with both windows vista, a 32 and 64bits had both upgraded to the much touted windows 7.
I am not happy at all, its unstable, text are overlapping, windows 7 media player wont play my files which I used to play with vista.
