    By and by, Windows’ system requirements are getting bigger and bigger. Wondering what they have to offer for old machines…

      Yeah, like me, I’m just a poor working student. Searching for old pc parts just to repair my unit. Not all people can afford it. How can windows7 run on my pc?

        If you’re looking for a system with the minium hardware requirements, I recommend using any systems that’s been on the market within the past 3 years (2007-2010). If you’re running with an AMD Athlon or Sempron processors, socket 754 or AM2 with a mimium of 2GB of RAM (DDR400 or greater, DDR2 533 or higher) is recommended, at least 160GB HDD. Type video graphics card AGP 8X 256 OR 512MB or PCI-Express socket types. Most motherboards has the video built-in. But the board will have a PCI-E or AGP slot for you to purchase a higher excelerated graphics card. If you’re using your own audio card (i.e. SoundBlaster Live, Audigy) it will require downloading the updated drivers for Windows 7.

        Other than the above, you’ll love the features of Windows 7 over XP & Vista. And yes, the system will run & bootup faster.

    @Jeff Weedy

    What the hell are you talking about man! The Beta was VERY well done, solid, and VERY reliable!! The RC kicks ass (I downloaded mine April 30 from Technet :) ) for sure but the Beta was nothing to laugh at. ;)

    It’s been the same story since Windows 95!
    Tell me you’re NOT happy you upgraded back then, despite “EVERYTHING” being so totally user UNFRIENDLY!

    Computers are now “investments,” that can be upgraded and they’re cheaper than ever.

    Hang on to that “old” machine…but, now’s the time to get up to date with your PC.
    You’ll be glad to leave XP behind.
    …unless, of course, you just like to surf and check your Email…in which case you may be able to get away with a Web TV unit. (if they still exist!)
    I loved Vista Ultimate from The first Beta release.
    I can’t wait for Windows “8!”
