Help, do I need to upgrade to Windows Vista?

If you have been reading my blog lately I have been talking about getting my new pc out of my blog money soon and I am just so excited. In fact I went to Greenhills shopping center on Sunday and I got tons of brochures and quotations from different shops. Actually I really needed to upgrade my pc since it was about 4 years already since I haven’t upgraded. And it is so embarrassing to say bec. the one that I am using right now is still running Win ’98, lol (but I do have another pc which has Win XP).

Anyway, I really wanted to buy an HP pc and I am drooling over their HP Pavillion A5056D that I saw here are the features:
INTEL Core Duo 1.8 ghz
512 Mb DDR2 memory (free upgrade to 1 Gb at Octagon store in Megamall till May 13th)
17” HP LCD monitor Win Vista Home Basic

I don’t worry much about the price (Php 49,990) since I know HP is expensive since it is branded, its quality is already tested and I know it will really perform.

What I am worried about is if I upgrade to Vista, I am not so sure if my old Photoshop 7 or if I do get PSCS2 or3 and PSP8 (Paint shop Pro) programs that I have will work on Vista. There is no use for me to buy pc with Vista if my PS and PSP will not work bec. that is where I will make my digital kits and do digital scrapbooking layouts.

I have inquired all other shops that sell HP pc but it seems that Vista is already they are marketing right now. There is one that have still win XP but the memory is just 512 mb. Sighhhhh

Help anyone especially my co-bebots and digiscrappers, I need to hear your views before I buy. It’s a lot of money so I don’t want to waste it. Thanks for your feedbacks.
