Windows 7: Aero and onboard graphics

Aero and onboard graphics

I'm planning on building a micro-pc with onboard graphics (Zotac NF630I-F-E Mini-ITX board/Pentium D 925) and I'm wondering if onboard graphics are Aero theme friendly? I hate the Basic theme with a passion and I will probably rethink this board for one with a PCI-e x16 slot if onboard isn't going to cut it.

It really depends but im using an intel 945gm integrated and no problem. Check the video chipset specs and let us know them. Plus there are ways to force aero.

waiting on info

Not sure what you mean, but the NB is an Nvidia GeForce 7100 and the SB is an nForce 630i. The video chipset is an Nvidia GeForce 7100. I think I have an nvidia 7000 series card sitting around here, the performance wasn't stellar with gaming, but it worked great with Aero. Besides, I have an Xbox for gaming.

Hi,

Win7 RC1 had difficulties installing on 7100.

I couldn't get it installed. It would freeze in the boot screen.

I don't know if it's fixed with rtm, but if it is, your card should support aero.
