i have run it on a p3 800 with 256mb ram, not very well tho, i would say that any processor over 1.4ghz is good, 512mb is the minimum i would recommend for any pc these days that does a wide variety of tasks. building one for this standard isnt too pricey and dell do great deals on machines that are fast enough.Originally Posted by ICTNUT
i havent run it on a machine with a modern gpu yet, as far as i can see that is just for transparency and animations, it runs fine on machines that dont have this. graphics chipsets i've run on are onboard intel and gf4 mx.
i'll translate this bit for you:
• Are designed to ensure that graphics user experience scales up with hardware capabilities.
means: "windows is only pretty if you have a really nice graphics card"
• Offer improved graphic stability and performance.
means: "we cant make windows run well on old PCs, we're not taking responsibility"
• May be able to support additional desktop productivity features.
means: "you can have dual display and higher resolution if you have a good graphics card"
basically ignore it unless you do multimedia stuff.
I haven't got the Vista beta, but I did have the Longhorn one, I found out that it needed a Rad 9800pro to work properly (which I have), so I hacked it, to enable the funky graphics, and it looked great, I just hope they keep it in!
