hardware upgrade/activation XP/Vista

  peterwilliam 13:45 10 Aug 07

I have both XP and Vista running in dual boot mode.
My computer has a 939 Asrock motherboard with an AMD Athlon 3500 pcu and 1 Gig memory. My graphics card is a Nvidia GeForce 6200 with 128 memory.
I have some time ago activated XP but not Vista (I have 11 days to go).
My query is this. Will my computer perform better (i.e. quicker) if I upgade to a Athlon dual core 3800 pcu, extra 1 gig of memory and a Nvidia Geforce 6200 with 256 memory?
Secondly, what will Microsoft's attitude be to this upgrading with regard to activation?
Any advice on these two matters will be greatly appreciated.
