What you need to run Windows Vista
When Windows Vista officially release in 2007 (hopefully no more delays), its PC hardware requirements will be something that could put a huge hole in your pocket than getting a new OS license.
Microsfot published the official Vista requirements for two sets of PC — Windows Vista Capable PC and the Windows Vista Premium Ready PC.
A Windows Vista Capable PC includes at least:
* A modern processor (at least 800MHz1).
* 512 MB of system memory.
* A graphics processor that is DirectX 9 capable.
A Windows Vista Premium Ready PC includes at least:
* 1 GHz 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor1.
* 1 GB of system memory.
* A graphics processor that runs Windows Aero2.
* 128 MB of graphics memory.
* 40 GB of hard drive capacity with 15 GB free space.
* DVD-ROM Drive3.
* Audio output capability.
* Internet access capability.
A minimum 512MB memory to run Vista? Now that’s a killer.
