Windows 7: W7 compatibility - GF8400 and Aero ?

W7 compatibility - GF8400 and Aero ?

The Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor says my video card won't support Aero.
It's an Asus GF8400GS with 256Mb. (EN8400GSSILENTHTP512M)
Both the Nvidia site and Windows 7 Compatibility Center say it is compatible with W7. Does this mean it will support Aero or not?

The Aero page
just says it needs to support DirectX v9, and Windows Display Driver Model Driver, Pixel Shader 2.0 in hardware, and 32 bits per pixel - that doesn't sound too difficult?

Your card will run Aero perfectly well.
