    i would say like everyone else 2 or 4gb ram atleast even for 32bit, it makes a difference from 1gb.

    and if u want a boost in boot up, set windows to use all 4 cores.

    Don't touch windows. 7 is the best to date. 2GB RAM and an SSD will give you a full speed PC. Q6600 is nice for the jobs you say. Don't spend to change anything else. I did it in my PC with the SSD and win7 64bit and it is perfect now.

    Definitely Lubuntu or Xubuntu. You can even go LinuxMint XFCE or Debian edition. You can try Crunchbox if you can handle the GUI. But for an out of the box...90% all hardware working setup......LinuxMint.

    I install ubuntu and everything works and not delays at all:)

    Thanks for your help guys i appreciate it!

    It's kind of difficult to install programs but all others are ok. From speed and so on i am able to work and that's fine.
